The Pastor-in-Charge of Divine Shadow Church, Daudu, Uhembe Jacob, has been killed by angry youths over his alleged complicity in missing male organ in the community.

Daudu is a resident of satellite town on Makurdi- Lafia federal highway predominately inhabited by Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) owing to hersdmen attacks on farmers in Guma and Logo local government areas in Benue.

For more two weeks, the town has witnessed massive protests over alleged missing male genital organ.

Youths in the area went on rampage and set the house of Pastor Uhembe Jacob ablaze last Tuesday after accusing him of being the brain behind the missing organ, The Nation, reports.

Accusing him of being one of the syndicates acting as a pastor to pray and heal those who had their organs removed, the report said the pastor, had attempted to escape in his vehicle.

But as he was overtaken and killed by youths who were in hot pursuit, as he drove towards Lafia Road in Nassarawa State, the report said, adding that his body was found in the bush on Friday.

The incident was said to have sparked off tension in the community, as some residents loyal to the pastor staged a peaceful demonstration on Sunday while displaying his poster leading to the Benue Police Command deploying anti-riot police team to forestall break down of law and order.
