Nigerians living in Lagos tortured and lynched a young looking man identified as Temitope Adeoye aka SODIQ as he was returning from work. The mob which attacked him accused him of theft and gave him no room to vindicate himself.
According to online reports by Temitope’s friend, @acelady_luck who narrated how Temitope was killed. @acelady_luck said that Temitope was returning from work and got to a bus stop along cele ijesha road. Some boys living in the area raised the theft accusation against Temitope. The boys immediately manhandled him and literally set him on fire.
Temitope’s mum died last December and he is leaving behind his pregnant girlfriend.

No Police report has been heard concerning this incident. Similar incident took place at Anambra, where a man was beaten to death by villagers in Anambra State. The man was falsely accused of being a kidnapper by some kids who he was chasing because they broke his car’s windshield.
Jungle Justice is becoming rampant in Nigeria and the Law enforcement agencies are doing everything possible to curb the unlawful act. The police rescued one man at Owerri from being lynched. The man was accused of stabbing a girl to death.
