One Pastor Chigozie Nosiri has narrated how a member of his Church escaped death in the hand of some Nigerian armies in Oyigbo, Rivers State.
According to Nosiri in a post on his Facebook page a few hours ago, the church member whose photos he shared was beaten by soldiers parading the Oyigbo area to enforce order in the state following the imposed curfew by Governor Nyesom Wike.
The clergyman noted that the soldiers had mistaken the young man for someone else and started pouncing on him, fortunately, another soldier intervened after he noticed he was mistaken for someone else.
However, the soldiers had already given him bruises and whip marks on his face and all over his body before he was rescued.
