Pastor Prosper Obum Igboke, a Nigerian cleric identified as a pastor of a Pentecostal church, has killed himself. He decided to take this drastic step after his lover jilted him.
A relative of the deceased who pleaded anonymity revealed that the man had trained his lover in the university, after which she declined his marriage proposal.
“The man was 30 years old at the time of his death. His girlfriend, whom he intended to marry disappointed him after seeing her through the university.
“He jumped down from a two storey-building and died. I am surprised that a man of his age and a pastor can do this.” The source reported.
The man was buried yesterday, Friday, in a bush, according to the traditions of Leru autonomous community of Umunneochi LGA in Abia State which requires anyone who commits sacrilege to be buried in a forest.
