A man, identified simply as Prophet Wale, has killed himself in a Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Ona Iwa Mimo, on Otunba Bamidele Street, in the Ikotun area of Lagos State.
According to Punch Metro, the victim had approached the owner of the church, a prophetess, to be part of her......ministry. He reportedly claimed to be a prophet and said he would love to assist her.
However the prophetess rejected the offer, and the victim became angry.
He was said to have grabbed a bottle, broke it and stabbed himself in the neck.
The matter was reported at the Ikotun Police Division on Wednesday.
When Punch correspondent visited the community on Thursday, he observed that many of the residents were reluctant to discuss the incident.
At the church, a man, who identified himself as Noah, declined comment. He said no relatives of the suspect were available for comment.
