7-year-old boy lynched for allegedly stealing garri (Graphic PHOTOS)

According to local news reports in Nigeria, a seven-year-old boy was burnt to death in the Badagry area of Lagos State for allegedly attempting to steal garri from a trader’s shop.

Though there have been conflicting reports especially concerning the age of the victim or what he actually stole, eyewitnesses say he was caught trying to break into a shop where food stuffs are sold in the early hours of Tuesday, November 15, 2016 in Lagos, Nigeria.


The suspect, it was gathered, was nabbed by some men in the area who descended on him and beat him to a pulp before hanging a tire on his neck and setting him on fire, despite pleas by many to hand him over to the police since he had not actually committed the crime.

This is not the first time suspects have been lynched to death in the most gruesome of manners with the crowd often not wanting to know what offense they committed before killing them.

Some of them have been found to be innocent only after they have been sent to their graves.

  6. This is the most bitter news I've read in a very long time. Who burns a person not to talk a child to death. Humans have lost all sense of morality in them. When it comes to religion Nigerians are the first but the evil those them people do is beyond my imagination. If it was TB Joshua the whole nation would have come to stop it happening but no one could rescue a 7yrs old boy? This is disgusting, this is so so so so sad, God help us all

  7. The person who committed this heinous crime has now a life in prison or death sentence awaiting him. And the most evil people under heaven are those ones which are just watching this odious, wicked, evil, atrocious, monstrous, disgraceful, abominable, detestable, contemptible, reprehensible, despicable, horrible, horrific, horrifying, terrible, awful, abhorrent, loathsome, outrageous, shocking, shameful, hateful, hideous, unspeakable, unpardonable, unforgivable, inexcusable, execrable, ghastly, iniquitous act happening as if they are watching the casting of a hollywood movie.

    May God's anger descend upon them, including those watching without taking action, and roast them beyond recognition in the valley of Hades. That's my prayer for them!!!
