The incident happened at Lessel community, in Ushongo Local Government Area of the state on Tuesday, February 23. 

It was gathered that the youngest sibling of the deceased 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. 

Reacting to the barbaric act, Ushongo Council chairman, Hon. Asawa, ordered the immediate arrest and prosecution of the six men who tortured the man to death.
