A man described as Lambert who reportedly tied a woman's pregnancy in a coffin has been banished by a community for his evil act.
This was revealed by a Facebook user, Ezeji Uche who disclosed that the fetish individual hid two birds in a micro casket. By the time he was discovered, the animals were still alive and were heard vocalizing in a video provided by Uche.
In the clip, an elderly man was heard addressing Lambert who bent on his knees while a crowd surrounded him. He was questioned concerning what he intended to do with the items recovered from him.
