A sad-to-watch video has emerged on social media showing members of a church in Nigeria beating up an old woman whom they apparently suspect is a witch.
The congregants alleged that a bird had fallen through the roof of the church and transformed itself into the elderly woman.
In the footage, the woman is seen surrounded by the hostile congregants as she is whipped and beaten up. She tries to get away from them to no avail. They appear to show no mercy despite her entreaties to be set free.
It has not been established if the congregants’ claims that the woman had transformed from a bird were true.
To watch the sad incident, see the video below.
