A church priest stood among a set of onlookers who include worshippers at his church to witness the brutal beating of two thieves by some mob after they were allegedly caught stealing a motorcycle from a church premises in Anambra state.
News correspondents gathered that the incident happened on Tuesday morning during the 5:30 mass at Sacred Heart parish, Ukunu Eziora Ozubulu, Anambra state.
The suspects were caught while attempting to steal the motorcycle.
However, observers were shocked that the priest supported the mob action vented out on them and did nothing to stop them or alert the police.
One of the priests was even caught on camera holding a whip. This goes to show his participation in the violent action.
