Irate youths in Daudu community, Guma local government area of Benue State have set ablaze Divine Shadow Church in the area belonging to one Prophet Joshua Uhembe who is allegedly fingered in the mysterious disappearance of manhood.
Prophet Uhembe and his accomplice Noah Saka are accused of masterminding the disappearance of genital organs in Daudu Community.
Daudu community is located along Makurdi-Lafia federal highway, and is accommodating over three Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps of vuctims of Fulani herdsmen attacks.
A source from the area who simply identified himself as Jonah told Elanza News that the aggrieved youths came out to protest alleged rampant cases of penis disappearance which they say have been a recurrent situation for time being.
It was gathered that over six young men have had their penis disappear mysteriously in the past weeks, a development which prompted the demonstration.
But not satisfied, the youths in the wee hours of today burnt down the church belonging to Prophet Uhembe, whom the community suspected is instrumental to the criminal act ravaging the community.
One of the protesting youths, who simply gave his name as Aondongu said “the attitude of the Prophet Uhembe and Noah Saka has put fear in the people especially men who now find it difficult to move freely for fear of having their penis removed.
“We are surprised that someone who calls himself a man of God will stoop so low to removing private parts of men for ritual purposes”.
When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Catherine Anene who confirmed the burning of the church disclosed that some persons were also arrested for destruction of public properties,
