A pentecostal church pastor, Prosper Obum Igboke, has committed suicide in Nnewi, Anambra State of Nigeria.

The man, sources said, jumped to his death from a two storey-building after he was jilted by his lover.

A relative of the deceased, who didn’t want his identity disclosed, said the man had trained his lover in school up to the university level, after which she turned down 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.”

Going by the tradition of Leru autonomous community of Umunneochi Local Government Area in Abia State, the pastor was buried Friday in a forest for committing sacrilege, the source added.
