So at first we were skeptical about this story of the alleged “7 year old” kid who was lynched to death after he allegedly stole garri.

After careful investigations, we have come to the conclusion that he wasn’t actually a seven year old boy who stole garri but rather he was a man in his twenties who was nabbed by angry residents who took law into their own hands and had jungle justice on him.

No one is in support of jungle justice, but the stories that we’ve gathered concerning the whole incident has made us realize that the agonies that the so called thief and his gang brought to some families in Alafia, was what made the residents take that action – they did what they did because they felt the Police and law won’t give the culprit the right justice he deserved and might even go scot-free

A Twitter user had shared that he knew the ‘man’ who was been lynched to death at the time… He shared:

  1. Look at his young body little pennis n you…..his blood is on you, both the killer n those there watching n even those trying to cover them

  2. This story is really complicated. I can feel this guys pain. Losing som1 is a horrible experience. U feel like going extra mile to kill d one who killed ur beloved urself. Bt to kill ain’t easy. It takes a really wicked hrt to kill a fellow human being. He killed and u guys also killed. Well, let God judge this case!!!

  3. the residents has no right to take his life. just because of garri.they should know his hungry. omo see direct ticket to hell fire.Olohun sanu gbogbo wa

  4. My GOD!!!Because of Garri den kill dis guy,anybody dat has hand in dis guy dead sha not see peace from now to the end of his life[Amen].so painful rest in peace guy

  5. There’s no real stories u guys are just trying to hide the truth but God will punish as many that have a hand in his death their generations to come will never live to see this little boy age for killing a young boy

  6. where is the evidence that he stole a phone, also where is the Lady he stole the phone from, the constitution of Nigeria guarantees the presumption of Innocence until such a person is proven guilty by a competent court of Law. And lastly human life is sacred is not something that should be treated with such levity,

  7. Don’t believe everything you read from the media. They can spice up reports to sell their papers, just the way you cook up posts to get likes. The alleged kid that was lynched by angry mob for “attempting to steal garri” is utter garbage. First of all the culprit is in his mid 20’s and he’s a notorious,brutal criminal working with a dangerous gang. His small nature had many decieved. What would a 7year old kid be doing with a gang? Which sane people would lynch a kid for trying to steal “garri”? What sane people could even believe that? It happened in Alafia, Orile, Lagos. I heard it before the press started publicing it. Thought it was another story when i read it from the papers. But People already started abusing and cursing the people who carried out this act without getting the facts right. I’m critical of the people who took the laws into their own hands, but more for the media misleading people. #SayWhatYouSee #DontBelieveEverythingYouRead

  15. Wait….. Come to think of it although I am not supporting the jungle justice but….. If it were 7 year old boy he would not survive that kind of beating and torture

  17. Abeg mk una help them arrest those ones stealing the billions and c if they won’t slice them one by one. #justsayingsha#

  18. There are things I don’t believe so easily. I don’t believe that what that boy stole is Garri and I don’t also believe that the picture am seeing is a 7 yrs old boy picture. Anyways, I leave judgement to God.

  19. D pple dat kill dis boy will die untimely nd shameful death nd God will also send dere own killer

  20. I wasn’t there but I don’t believe anyone can burn a seven year old, no matter what, d person na devil???

  21. Both the people that burnt him and those that stood watching him like some home video are not evil,they are the devil himself
