Pastor Commits Suicide In Nasarawa State

A clergy man, Mr. Enoch Massin,
in Nasarawa town of Nasarawa
state has committed suicide by
Family sources and police
authorities told leadership
Sunday that the late Massin, an
unemployed professional
teacher who was sacked by his
employers three times within
one year; in 2011 told his wife
who resided that he wanted to
visit his home town , Akwanga
where he omitted the suicide.
The deceased reportedly
concealed the rope with which
he hung himself when he got to
the village. The teacher’s
younger brother, Godwin
Massin who confirmed the
incident told our reporter that:
‘There was actually no reason
for anyone to have suspected
anything when he arrived his
village. He discussed with his
relatives and entered his room.
It was when his meal was ready
and the lady who served the
food went to call him, that he
discovered him dangling from
the noose tight to the ceiling’
that arrangements were being
made to bury his remains, while
sympathisers thronged the
community to commiserate with
the family members.
The decease was said to have
left a note where he wished that
the epitaph on his grave should
read "Here lies a man who died
for what he believed in”
Leadership Sunday findings
revealed that the family of the
deceased has a history of
committing suicide. Two of the
late man’s uncles had committed
suicide some years ago when
the family lost a court case over
a farmland
In a separate development an
ex-soldier, Baba Abeku has
drilled young ladies in Nasarawa
town when a baby was found
concealed in a polythene bag
and dumped in drainage near
the palace of a local chief in the
Report has it that on
discovering the dead on an
baby, the ex warrior in an
attempt to fish out the lady who
committed the act summoned
scores of unmarried ladies in
area and some kind of military
precision drilled in the process
dipping his hands in their
private parts whether he could
trace blood.
The action of the old soldier did
not produce any result, but was
widely condemned by some
elders who posited that the
offence could not have been
committed by only unmarried
Our reporter gathered that
attempt by some parents to
have the soldier arrested by
police was resisted by some
youths yesterday
