to hang himself in a tree with a rope and raised the alarm.

happened near Ben Wosley, Ada George, Port Harcourt,
The rescuers, alongside some policemen, successfully
untied the rope from his neck and poured water on him
before he regained consciousness.
Shortly after regaining consciousness, the pastor asked of
the whereabout of his wife and daughter, who were both at
the scene of the incident, crying profusely.
The yet to be identified pastor kept screaming “Im tired”
Narrating what led to his action, he said:
He said: “I’m tired. You people should allow me to die.
Since 2000 that I opened my ministry, no members, only
15 members. God, you called me, I have fasted, I have
prayed, I have done everything to make sure my church
grows. I have gone for evangelism, I have gone for
morning call, I have called for night vigil, I have done
everything so that my church will grow”.
Speaking further, he said: “My colleagues that we went to
church school together, they’re doing well, their church
have grown, they’re travelling abroad while mine is not
growing. I will host crusade, I will not even see money to
settle the debts incurred. I have done everything. I cannot
even pay my house rent”
