An irate mob on Tuesday reportedly beat a secondary school dropout, simply identified as Chidozie and set him ablaze for stealing mobile phones at Iyang Edem by Mount Zion in Calabar, Cross River state capital.

Chidozie, according to Vanguard, belonged to a five-man robbery gang.
On the said day, Chidozie and his gang members allegedly visited Atu Secondary School, where they attacked a teacher and dispossessed her of valuables, including her phones.
Unfortunately for the gang, residents in the neighbourhood had been trailing them as they had been terrorising the area.
According to an eyewitness, luck ran out on Chidozie who could not run as fast as his gang members.
The eyewitness who spoke on conditions of anonymity said, “He was unfortunate, because the others escaped.
“Due to the spate of armed robberies in our area, they did not spare him because he refused to accept that the phone was with him.


  1. Jungle justice is not good... They should have handed him over to the police. It would even help them to locate other members.

  2. I don't support stealing but then there needs to be a sensitization on jungle justice it's very bad. The people stealing millions walk freely. We need to change our mindset.

  3. I heard he was a notorious one

  4. I wonder how people just stand by and watch someone burn to death. Like seriously???that's a very terrible way to die and no one deserves this irrespective of what he/she might have done. Na wa oh!
