Jagbefume Oriagioge, a 45-year-old man has reportedly committed suicide after he was accused by his neighbors of defiling his neighbor’s daughter in Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State.
According to reports, the man who happens to be a church usher hanged himself in his room at Iregwa Street, Agbor on Saturday, July 17.
Oriagioge, also known as Pastor, was a committed usher at a branch of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Agbor, also known as Freedom Hall church, and came from an Esan village in Edo State.
The deceased was suspected of killing himself after being accused of defiling one of his neighbors’ daughters.
One of his neighbors told Nigerian Tribune; the deceased was suspected to have ended his life as he could no longer bear the shame of allegedly having carnal knowledge of his neighbor’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 neighbor is what we do not understand and now he has ended his life perhaps out of shame,” the neighbor added.
DSP Bright Edafe, the spokesperson of the State Police Command confirmed the incident and said the remains of the deceased have been deposited at the mortuary of Central Hospital, Agbor for autopsy by the policemen from Agbor Police Divisional Headquarters while further investigations are ongoing.
