The incident was said to have happened at 11am on Monday morning, October 18, around NNPC Mega station along Otukpo Road, Makurdi, Benue State.
In a video shared by LIB, the pastor is seen being beaten to pulp by mob as he bleeds from his face. According to report, eyewitnesses who accused the Pastor of stealing the phone did not have enough evidence to back up their accusation.
Nevertheless, they accused him anyway and expressed their disappointment and how wrong it is for him to be involved in such an act as a Pastor.
Residents could also be heard complaining of how they are being constantly robbed in the area and how they are unable to sleep at night due to fear of being robbed.
