Jagbefume Oriagioge, a 45 year-old man has reportedly murdered himself on being alleged of defiling a minor. The terrible event was said to have happened at Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State.
The suspect who reportedly hanged himself in his room based in Iregwa, Agbor on Saturday, July 17, has served as usher at the Redeem Christian Church of God popular for “Freedom Hall” parish.
According to Nigerian Tribune, a neighbour said, “The deceased was suspected to have ended his life as he could no longer bear the shame of allegedly having carnal knowledge of his neighbour’s female child (minor) and which was discussed at the community palace.
The deceased was somebody who was not free with people to really tell who he was. We called him ‘pastor’ because we felt he was one.”
The neighbour added that, “But the news of him sleeping with the female child of his neighbour is what we do not understand and now he has ended his life perhaps out of shame.”
DSP Bright Edafe while speaking for the police in his capacity as the Police Public Relations Officer attested to the fact that the corpse is already at the morgue. That an autopsy will be carried out in due time.
