The Plateau State Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria said on Sunday that it had begun an investigation into an alleged invasion of a church and flogging of worshipers by masqueraders in Langtang South Local Government Area of the state.
It was reported on Sunday that a Church service was disrupted by masqueraders who flogged worshipers in Shikal village of Langtang South Local Government Area of the state.
The masquerades who arrived at the church premises while the church service was ongoing were said to have flogged the worshipers and also destroyed some church properties in the process.
Reacting to the development, the state chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev Polycarp Lubo, told The PUNCH in Jos on Sunday night that though no formal complaints had been lodged to the association, the Christian body had begun an investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident.
The CAN chairman said “I saw the report on social media and I was disturbed. “But for now, I can not say whether it is true or not. But we are not going to let it go without finding out what happened.
“My Secretary is from that area. So I have asked him to get in touch with the church where the invasion by masquerades and flogging of worshipers allegedly took place. So, by tomorrow (Monday) I expect to get the report of the investigation”
