Young Thief In Uyo Almost Burnt Alive (Photos):
A thief who was caught stealing car batteries was rescued yesterday from being lynched by an angry mob after they doused him with petrol and almost set him ablaze in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital. After he was saved by a good Samaritan from being killed, he was taken into custody by policemen who were later called.
Read below what his rescuer wrote on Facebook;
#AbortedJungleJustice… I just save life this #ForgivingSunday Morning… This young boy was caught by area boys stealing car batteries and other items in a mechanic workshop, they tighten the boy like he-goat pour petrol on him, about to set fire on him to burn to ashes… As God may have it I stepped into the scene, introduced myself and ordered all of them to stand down their actions else everybody will go in for it…. Though wasn’t easy for them to obey me, I immediately call Police for backup, to also take away the boy for proper investigations….
God Forgiving N Merciful..Thank n Glorify Him
