Man falsely accused of being a thief stabbed and burnt to death in Lagos
This is really sad. When will jungle justice end in Nigeria? Few hours back, a Nigerian woman reported on Social Media that a colleague of hers was burnt to death after being falsely accused of stealing in Lagos State.
According to woman, she said her colleague, Temitope Adeoye, who had just gotten off a bus, was about boarding a motorcycle to take him home, when some boys in that area started shouting, ‘thief, thief’ and also pointing at him.
As he attempted clearing his name, he was gathered by people, beaten, stabbed and eventually set ablaze.
Here is what she posted on Facebook;
“This is the picture of TEMITOPE ADEOYE,his Facebook handle is (A KAN JI) he is my colleague at work apapa tincan island port, was coming from work when someone people point him as thief he was burn to death instantly his mother died last December and his girlfriend is heavily pregnant pls justice sodique justice for his family it happened last night along cele ijesha road”
