2 Thieves caught stealing iPhone, 1 killed by Jungle Justice in Benin

Young man killed by mob after he and his accomplice were allegedly caught stealing iPhone 6 and laptop

Two young men suspected of robbery were nabbed and one was killed by an angry mob in Benin, Edo state.

The young men are alleged to have been terrorizing the Sakponba neighbourhood by snatching people’s phones at night and collecting money belonging to market women.

They allegedly went to steal a laptop and an iPhone 6 on the night of Sunday, October 4, 2018, and were caught on Monday morning around Upper Sakponba road.

Angry residents decided to deliver jungle justice rather than take the suspects to the authorities. They beat up the suspects so badly that one of them died before police arrived.

    Jungle justice is very wrong …. those who are involved should be prosecuted.

    You see this happened in Benin if it were north they will be crying. Nigerians are the same poor or rich. Government and the Governed. Looting without mind at the same wicked heart towards someone that stole and caught. What if they were not caught who will you kill. They should be handed over to police. The soul is precious. U just don’t kill any how
