Man comes down from mast after 30 hours, blames failure in business, marriage


A 43-year-old man who climbed a telecommunication mast in an attempt to commit suicide has blamed failures in his marital life and business as reasons why he chose to take his life.

He added that his long stay on the mast is in a quest to get the attention of the founder of the Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN), Prophet Temitope Joshua.

The father of two identified as Joseph Stephen came down at exactly 8:00 p.m. on Saturday after over 30 hours on the mast.


According to his wife, he left home on Friday, saying that he wanted to travel to Lagos to see the man of God, not knowing that he would go to the telecommunication mast. She said she is totally surprised and frightened by his actions.

His action to step down followed the police and DSS’s decision to invite his wife with convincing pieces of evidence that the SCOAN have sent down a delegation to take him to Lagos.

Investigation revealed that he is Higi by tribe, hails from Minchika village of Adamawa State and resides in Jalingo, Taraba State capital.
