Suicide, a phenomenon, which appears to be assuming an epidemic dimension in the country, with about four fatal cases, recorded in the last 24 hours, and two others averted, has reached the domain of the Christendom, with a gospel artist with the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Michael Arowosaiye, being the victim.
Arowosaiye, who regularly performed at RCCG programmes, was said to have hanged himself with his belt on Tuesday at Sunnyvale Estate, Lokogoma District, Abuja.
The deceased, who recently ministered during a youth praise event at the church, was believed to be depressed and battling over certain personal issues, which appears not known to anybody at the moment.
The acting spokesman, Federal Capital Territory Police Command, ASP Gajere Danjuma, confirmed the incident.
Arowosaiye, celebrated his last birthday on July 1 last year, posted a picture of himself and Bishop Wale Oke on Facebook in March this year, writing “Lord please I receive this great grace. “Thank you Bishop Francis Wale Oke.”
