‘Cannibal’ Cult leader Known as Black Jesus Hacked to Death by Villagers
A cult leader known as “Black Jesus” has been hacked to death by villagers in Papua New Guinea.
Police said Steven Tari was cornered while attacking a woman, with media reports saying he was chopped up.
Tari, a convicted defiler who had also been accused of cannibalism, was on the run after breaking out of jail with 47 others earlier this year.
He was also suspected of murdering a schoolgirl earlier this month.
Tari had thousands of followers before his imprisonment in 2010.
He had claimed to be the true Christ and promised his cult members great wealth.
Among his disciples were dozens of s*x slaves he called his “flower girls”
His r*pe convictions were based on evidence he had abused these young women.
Tari had studied to become a Lutheran pastor but disappeared from his theological college after disputing the Bible’s teachings.
