Luck ran out on a suspected thief this week around Petroleum down, a suburb of Dansoman in Accra, Ghana when he went to rob a certain man in his house alongside his crime partner. The said thief was caught in the process, and instead of the people who caught him to handle him over to the police, they allowed people to gather around them, beat him to a pulp, hung a tyre around his neck, then set him ablaze. His partner was fortunate to have escaped the angry mob, but he wasn’t.
A resident also confirmed this to Ghana’s Citi FM saying;
“They were actually two in number who attempted stealing from a man’s residence as he was having his bath. The man whose age I can’t tell, was lynched by the residents and lit up while the other escaped.”
I just think people should always give others a second chance. RIP!
