Catholic worshiper commits suicide, hangs self in church

Unidentified man found hanging in Delta

A devoted Catholic member and taxi driver identified as Kachi sent scores into pandemonium and mourning when he reportedly committed suicide in the premises of the church hall at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, located at Creek road in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

According to Magnus, a youth leader in the church, the deceased who hailed from Imo State was well liked because he is a mass servant dedicated to the works of God.

Reports say the deceased may have taken his life probably because the owner of the taxi he was operating to make bread and butter retrieved his vehicle.

According to Nkechi Ndu, a member of the church, efforts have been made to contact the parents of the the 20 something year-old boy who had taken refuge in the church.

Ndu said; “The boy was not married and has been sleeping in the church hall. The taxi he was driving was on hire purchase.

“I learnt the owner of the car has collected it. May be, he was not meeting up his conditions of agreement with the owner. I think he took his life out of frustration,” she offered.
