Shocking! See why Church Usher Commits Suicide
After being accused of defiling a minor in Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State, a 45-year-old man known as “pastor” hanged himself.
On Tuesday, it was confirmed that the incident occurred on July 5, 2021.
Jagbefume Oriagioge, the dead, is said to have hanged himself in his room on Iregwa Street in Agbor.
Residents of Iregwa Street, off Ojeifoh Street and Upper Queen Lane, reportedly awoke to see the man’s lifeless body dangling from the ceiling on that tragic day.
The deadman was suspected of killing himself after being accused of defiling a minor of one of his neighbours.
“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.
“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,” a neighbour narrated.
Oriagioge was a devout usher at a branch of a prominent Pentecostal church in Agbor and was claimed to have been from an Esan community in Edo State.
Meanwhile, DSP Bright Edafe, the Delta State Command’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), confirmed the incident to our correspondent, saying the deceased’s remains have been deposited at the mortuary of Central Hospital, Agbor, for autopsy by police officers from the Agbor Police Divisional Headquarters, while further investigations are ongoing.
