Henry Jegbe, also referred to as “pastor,” has committed suicide after he was accused of having raped a minor in Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State.
The minor was said to be his neighbour’s daughter.
The suspected rapist was said to have been found dead by his neighbours upon waking up in the morning.
Other occupants of the compound where the suspected rapist lived were said to have deserted the compound following the self-inflicted death of their neighbour, Henry Jegbe.
A resident who spoke briefly to journalists said that it was shocking to wake up in the morning to learn that Jegbe had committed suicide by hanging.
