A troubled pastor, who is said to have attempted suicide twice, finally succeeded in ending his own life after a 3rd attempt. Pastor Gabriel Oyebode, who is the resident pastor of a popular pentecostal church in the Ikorodu area of Lagos, reportedly hung himself in a wooded area in the town.

The Pastor is said to have previously attempted to kill himself first in January 2013 and then more recently by trying to jump into a canal in the hopes of drowning.

A neigbour, who spoke in confidence, said: “But for his vigilant wife, who reported him to his family members, he would have killed himself last January. His second attempt also failed because those who saw him when he went to a nearby canal frustrated his attempt to drown in the canal.”
A friend of the pastor's family described his action as sad. He said: "It was pathetic to see the dangling body of a church leader who should offer homilies to those contemplating suicide."
The family friend, who asked for anonymity, said: “We heard that he was to visit the headquarters of the church before he went to a nearby bush in the neighbourhood and hanged himself.”

No one was ready to disclose what the pastor was really battling that made him attempt suicide twice before he later succeeded in taken his own life. He has been buried amid tears by his church members.
