An unidentified young man has been set ablaze by an angry mob for attempting to steal a new generator church along Atiku Abubakar Road in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.
KOKO TV NG reports that the incident occurred on 1st October, 2023.
According to Street journal, Amb Dignity Usenekong said that the culprit was apprehended on Sunday night, October 1, 2023 and macheted by the mob before being set ablaze.
He said: “Burning in this picture is a young man who chose to sacrifice himself today. I mean, its a thief who was caught today, 1st October 2023 while attempting to steal a generator in a new generation church in my neighborhood, Atiku Abubakar Avenue after putting off the generator that was on.”
He added that the mob descended on him with lots of matchet cuts and bruises from stones before finally dragging him out to the tarred road and then went on to set him ablaze.
“While i condemn jungle justice and advice that people should stop stealing, i have the confidence that the young man is heaven already although too early, because he was confessing and praying the lord’s prayer before being finally set ablaze.” Dignity added
