He added that investigation was ongoing over the matter.

Meanwhile, a neighbour said that Oriagioge might have ended his life as a result of the shame brought about by the controversy.

“The deceased was suspected to have ended his life as he could no longer bear the shame of allegedly having carnal knowledge of his neighbour’s female child (minor) and which was discussed at the community palace.

“The deceased was somebody who was not free with people to really tell who he was. We called him ‘pastor’ because we felt he was one.

“But the news of him sleeping with the female child of his neighbour is what we do not understand and now he has ended his life perhaps out of shame,” the neighbour said under condition of anonymity.
