Tragedy struck in Anambra after a pastor with a new generation church identified as Pastor Prosper Igboke committed suicide in Nnewi, Anambra State.

This medium gathered that Igboke jumped down from the two storey building and died after he was abandoned by his lover, whom he had spent so much on.

A relative of the late pastor who spoke to newsmen on Saturday, said the 30-year-old man from Leru community in Umunneochi local government area, Abia State, had trained his lover in the university, after which she declined his marriage proposal.

He said, “The incident happened last month. The man (Igboke) 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 this age and a pastor can do this.”

According to their village tradition, the relative said he was buried in a forest for committing “sacrilege”.

“He was eventually buried on Friday in a bush in his community,” the source added.
