Anambra pastor jumps down storey-building, kills self after lover jilted him
In Nnewi, Anambra State, a man who has been identified as the pastor of a pentecostal church, Pastor Prosper Obum Igboke, killed himself.
According to sources, the man jumped from a two-story building after his lover dumped him.
An unnamed relative of the deceased told the Daily Post that he had courted and proposed to his girlfriend while they were both students at the university.
“The man was 30 years old at the time of his death. His girlfriend, whom he intended to marry, disappointed him after seeing her at the university.
“He jumped down from a two-story building and died. I am surprised that a man of his age and a pastor can do this.”
The source claimed that the man would be buried in a forest for committing sacrilege in accordance with the Leru autonomous community's tradition of Umunneochi LGA in Abia State.
The man was eventually buried yesterday, Friday, in a bush, the source added.
