"It did not happen in Lagos" Police denies thief was burnt to death at Alafia


    The Lagos state police command has denied claims that the incident
    of jungle justice where a suspected young thief was
    burnt to death on Saturday November 12th, (read here) happened in Lagos. Recall that
    a video surfaced online last week showing what many presumed to be a 7
    year old boy being burnt to death for allegedly stealing food items.

    Investigations carried out by LIB showed that an alleged thief was burnt
    to death at Alafia, along the Badagry expressway when him and some of
    his gang members tried to steal the bag of a woman.
