The City of Orlando Police Department arrested a self-described prophet and founder of Floodgates of Heaven International Ministries named Sylvester Ofori in the murder of his 27-year-old wife.
The 35-year-old “pastor” was arrested on Tuesday night after he shot his wife Barbara Tommey outside the Navy Federal Credit Union branch where she worked. Tommey was transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead. She was the assistant manager of the credit union, where she worked for more than five years. Her profile further revealed that she graduated from the University of Central Florida in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in finance. She was working on a master’s degree in strategic communication and leadership at Marysville University of Saint Louis
Ofori and Barbara Tommey wedded five years ago in a beautiful ceremony at a plush estate in the United States. The beautiful Barbara met Pastor Sylvester Ofori at a church service. Their bond strengthened when they learned they shared the same birthday.
The two were staying in the US as husband and wife until their serendipitous union hit a rock. Barbara was advised by family to flee the marriage after her husband became abusive. In a video which has surfaced online, the ‘pastor’ is seen telling Barbara’s brother “If I don’t kill your sister, then I’m a fake”. Watch the video here. A closer digging into his social media also reveals that, although Ofori was a minister of the word, he did not believe in the Bible. Watch one of his meetings here as he debates out the inauthenticity of the Bible.
