A self-acclaimed Evangelist, Mr Akinjide Durojaiye, was beaten to a pulp for allegedly stealing two new Tecno mobile phones in Dugbe area of Ibadan, PUNCH Newspaper reports.
According to the report, Durojaiye
claimed to be an Evangelist at the Dominion Assembly, Ilare-Ijesa in Osun State.
PUNCH reports that he was apprehended by the attendants and other onlookers while trying to escape with the two phones valued at N70,000.
“ One of the shop attendants, who gave his name simply as Tunde, said he did not notice when the Evangelist pilfered the phones, which were on display, saying he and the others were already carried away by his preaching.
“While being chased by the attendants and neighbours, Durojaiye was said to have hidden in a store within the complex, but was located by an attendant in another shop after which he was brought out and beaten, while the phones were recovered from him.
The self-acclaimed Evangelist, who
clutched a copy of the Holy Bible to his chest, attributed the incident to the work of the devil, adding that his attempt to get money to treat his seven-year-old son, who is on admission in a hospital in Osun State pushed him into committing the crime.”
