Anambra Pastor Slumps After Losing Community Election

Tradegy was averted on Tuesday after a popular pastor
slumped and became unconscious after he lost an election in his community.
Pastor Pius Chigbo had allegedly spent huge sums of money
during the campaign for his community election in Umuchu town, Aguata Local
Government Area of Anambra State, southeast Nigeria.

In reaction, the youths in the area mobilized and threatened
to cause trouble if Chigbo was elected.
During the election, he discovered that no single person
including those who allegedly collected money from him voted for him.

nearby hospital where he was revived.
Chigbo had presented himself as one of the contestants for
the position of the president general of the community.
Trouble started when the youths threatened to disrupt both
election and activities in the community if the people voted for him.
Chigbo contested against two other opponents identified as
Raph Njirika and Osita Elemuo.

election and said he may get the money back by imposing levies on the people if
he won the election.
The youths were later persuaded to wait for the outcome of
the election and when the result was announced, Chigbo totally lost.
