Ghanian pastor threatened his wife a day before killing her

A popular pastor threatened his wife a day before he fatally shot her outside the Florida credit union where she worked.

The threat was made in a chilling video that shows Ghanian Pastor Sylvester Ofori arguing with his wife, Barbara Tommey’s sister and brother-in-law the day before he killed her on Sept. 8.

During the argument, Ofori told Tommey’s brother-in-law that another pastor told him his sister was a witch. “Name the pastor!” the brother-in-law said, as Ofori walked away.

Seconds later, Ofori told the man, “If I don’t kill your sister, know that I am fake.”

The brother-in-law told Tommey to pack her things, while Tommey’s sister, who was recording the video, told her to leave the house.

“Death is death. You can not replace life with death,” said Tommey’s sister, who provided a copy of the video to police.

Tommey’s sister and brother-in-law told police the couple was in the midst of divorcing.

Later that evening, Ofori wrote in a post on Facebook: “One thing people gotta understand about extremely kind, nice, loving people, is that their other side is just as extreme.”

The next morning, Ofori ambushed Tommey and shot her multiple times outside the front doors of the Navy Federal Credit Union on the 4600 block of Gardens Park Boulevard in Orlando, just before 9 a.m..

The murder was captured on CCTV. Ofori is seen holding a gun as Tommey walked up and knocked on the door of the credit union.

He approached her and shot her at point blank range. When she collapsed on the ground Ofori shot her in the head several more times.

“You can tell that she was surprised by what was happening,” police chief Orlando Rolon said.

“You can tell she’s trying to get inside. Unfortunately, he shoots her.”

Ofori, 35, was taken into custody at his apartment and charged with first-degree murder.

Ofori described himself as a prophet and motivational speaker on Facebook. He was a pastor at Floodgates of Heaven International Ministries in the Parramore neighborhood of Orlando.

He is being held at the Orange County Jail without bond.
