It was reported that two thieves were caught while trying to steal a motorcycle during the 5:30 mass at Sacred Heart parish, Ukunu Eziora Ozubulu, Anambra state.

The incident took place on Tuesday morning. The suspects were nabbed while trying to make away with the motorcycle and were beaten by the angry mob.

However, those who were observing the whole scenario were dazed to see that the priests who were supposed to stop the thieves from being beaten supported the action. They neither stopped the mob nor reported the incident to the police as one of the priests was seen holding a whip.
