Police arrest pastor for impregnating church member’s 15-yr-old daughter
Segla Hunvu, 48, has decided to take his own life as he was found dangling from a rope around his neck at his home located at Jogbenu Street, Torikovi Town, Mowo area of Badagry.
His demise, threw residents of the area into mourning after it was learnt through a relation who pleaded anonymity that Hunvu had informed his eldest son, a few days to the incident, to take care of himself and his younger ones.
“Hunvu came to the Ajegunle, Apapa area on Monday to see his younger brother, Michael Hunvu. We did not know he came to bid us farewell. He had earlier told his eldest son, who is a teenager, to take good care of himself and his younger ones,” the family source said.
Continuing, the source added that; “He did not come out clearly to say he wanted to kill himself. Nobody knew the reason he killed himself. It is suspected that he was frustrated.”
According to a police source, after Hunvu left his brother’s place in the Ajegunle area, he went to his home in Mowo where he took his own life.
A police source said that, “The children tried reaching him on the telephone, but calls made to him did not connect. It was after some days that his body was found in the room.”
SP Dolapo Badmos, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, who confirmed the incident, informed that the family members had requested the corpse from the morgue as they prepare for his burial.
