A middle-aged man has been tortured to death over a missing goat in Benue State.
The victim identified as Ordue Akume was severed by the youths of the community over a missing goat.
According to Vanguard news, a sibling of the deceased had allegedly reported to the youths of the community that his goat was missing.
This led to a spiritual consultation generally accepted to unveil the thief. After the oracle was consulted, the oracle revealed to them that it was the deceased that stole the goat.
Akume was forced into a state of duress to ensure he produces the stolen goat until it was sure he wouldn’t survive the torment, he was dumped in a private hospital where he later died.
