“According to them, a young man raised an alarm of theft of gen*tal organs. The youth picked up the closest person and beat him up till he decided to admit and mention his Pastor as the person who sent him with the hope that the Pastor would come and save him.
“The youth got the same pastor and beat him up as well. Help came when the police got to know and rescued them. It is too bad because there is no element of truth in this. Since the history of these allegations, it has never been proven and the complainants are usually advised and told that nothing was wrong with them.”
