“We suspected he must have killed himself over a harvest fund of N600,000 that was stolen from him weeks back. “He was in charge of the harvest fund in the church and a few weeks back he was robbed by some boys at the Oton area of Sapele where the church is located, and since then he has been acting strange,” the source said.

Numa was said to have sent a text message to some of his friends and relatives on Wednesday, threatening to kill himself if they did not help him with finance to offset some of his debt.

“Some of the children even promised to help out this week, only for us to hear that he had killed himself” the source added. A source at the Sapele Police Station confirmed the story to Vanguard, saying “one Numa Julius of Okpe Road was reported to have committed suicide, when we visited the scene, we saw the body dangling.

“We were not able to bring him down yesterday, but we learned he has been buried this afternoon (yesterday).” He said the case was being investigated to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the incident.
