According to a Facebook user who is from the community, Airo Brown, worried about the spate of stolen cars in the area, the Vigilante group decided to make some investigations and got to realise that the pastor was the leader of the gang and whenever the vehicles are stolen, they are taken to him and he would change the number plates, repaint the cars and move them out of the town for onward sale.
