A Nigerian Pentecostal church pastor reportedly attempted to take his own life over frustration from her ministry.
Reports revealed that the yet-to-be-identified pastor was trying to hang himself in a tree with a rope at Ben Wosley, Ada George, Port Harcourt, Rivers State but he was intercepted by some residents of the community after an alarm was raised.
The rescuers, together with some policemen, untied the rope from his neck and poured water on him until he regained consciousness.
The pastor lamented of having only 15 members in his church since 2000 despite doing everything on his part to make his ministry grow after regaining his consciousness.
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”
