I just heard this brother named Tony Phillip decided to take his life just yesterday 1st of March 2018, because his girlfriend left him.
Until his death he was a Legionary at my Parish..
It’s a shame I must confess.
I’m truly short of words.
May GOD have Mercy on is soul. Amen!
Few weeks ago, we reported that a 35-year-old Nigerian man, Francis Ibegbulem, was laid to rest, days after committing suicide in Altenstadt Bayern, Germany.
It was reported that Ibegbulem, from Imo State, moved to Germany from Turkey in 2015 and he was granted 3 years asylum by the German government.
According to his associates in the European country, Ibegbulm was said to have made an initial attempt to kill himself with a knife. He was then rescued by friends after which he ran into the forest to hang himself.
When friends didn’t hear from him for some days, a search party was organised before his corpse was then discovered in a nearby forest.
The circumstances surrounding his death is still unclear, as some of his friends said that he used to complain about unseen beings following him around, and that he used to soliloquize, prompting his company to sack him.
Some of his friends are also of the believe that the man got jilted by a girl he left in Nigeria. He is reported to have invested so much in her but it eventually happened that the girl got married to another man in 2017.
The Nigerian man was said to have been seriously heartbroken over the issue and he spoke to himself most of the times, in what looked like he was already losing his mind.
