Reports in local media say, Rev. Father Bilé was accused of molesting a little girl which prompted investigations by the church council to unravel the veracity of the accusations.

After siting on the case a few days ago, the council found it necessary to issue a temporary suspension to the priest over the alleged defilement.

In the face of the shame, Reverend Father Bilé, went ahead to hang himself and was later found dead by locals.
