  1. I don't support jungle justice,but I still imagine if that man escaped with the baby. Let's think of how devastated the mother will be. 240 girls missing almost three years now,and their parents are smiling right now in chibok I guess???? Nigeria let's not be sentimental,what if that's not the first time the man was doing such??

  2. No matter what, jungle justice is never the answer, many innocent people have died just because they were framed up to be thieves and kidnappers. I witnessed someone that was almost mobbed last month just because he was accused of being a thief, bike snatcher and rapist without any evidence, he was lucky because an FRSC officer was around to listen to him for a few seconds and decided to take him to where he claimed his brother lives. All the allegations levied against him turned out to be false, he was framed up by the person owing him money. He would have been killed for a crime he didnt commit

  3. Haaaaaaaaaaaaa, Nigerians why na, what if the boy is the father of the baby, and the woman want to punish him by calling him a thief, why are people wicked

  4. rip to the dead, next time they wont steal other people's things

  5. Enter your comment...May the boy soul rest in perfect peace, Amen
