Man Almost Killed for Stealing

A young man in his late 20s was almost beaten to death yesterday for allegedly stealing a motor cycle yesterday at Sango Sunday market, Ogun state.

 An eyewitness named Muideen described the bloody incident:

 " I came here to buy Ram, suddenly I saw people shouting thief thief running towards my direction, I saw a man who should be in his late 20s riding away on a chinjeg machine popularly. He was riding ferociously towards Basin from Sango, owing to the hot chase, he lost control and fell down from the Okada. He was pounced on beaten mercilessly, dangerous weapons like axe, burning stick among others were used to beat him to stupor.
  He was however rescued by men of the Mobile Police force who prevented him from being lynched. At the time of filing this report 1 hour after he was rescued by the police, he's yet to be taken to the hospital, rather he was left on the road side to the chagrin of passersby. The most annoying part is police officers leaving him seated on the street for more than 1 hour, on the guise that his blood will stain van & they have no money for car wash.'
