The man was getting ready to perform the Isyak prayer when the animal charged at him.

It was understood that he suffered cuts and lacerations on his body in the 8pm incident.

The animal was earlier spotted chasing some children outside the mosque before it ran inside and charged at the man.

The congregation, shocked by the presence of the wild animal, then tried to drive it away.

"It took us more than 30 minutes before the animal finally ran out of the mosque," said a witness.

He said the wild boar was then shot dead by one of the residents who had a shotgun.

He added that police have been alerted of the incident.
