Six men who reportedly kidnapped and tortured a man to death in Lessel community, Ushongo LGA of Benue state have been arrested.
It was gathered that the man was killed over a missing goat after an oracle said he stole it.
The suspects were arrested on Tuesday, February 23.
The youngest sibling of the deceased, identified as Ordue Akume, allegedly reported to the youths in the community that his goat was missing. During investigation, they decided to consult an oracle, who revealed to them that it was the deceased that stole the goat.
The deceased however denied the the allegation but in a bid to ensure that he admitted and return the said goat, the suspects persisted with all forms of torture despite pleas by neighbours and passers by to halt the torture.
When it became obvious to them that he could not survive, they moved and dumped him at a private clinic where he passed away.
