There was confusion and apprehension in and around Abule-Egba area in Lagos State yesterday, as residents declared jungle justice on a woman suspected kidnapper. Policemen and officials of the Department of State Security (DSS) and those of the Nigeria Security & Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) watched helplessly as the mod set the woman ablaze.
Then a female hawker in the area, suspecting the woman was up to no good, alerted others in the area who then surrounded the woman and started asking her questions. They say the woman claimed they were her children but couldn’t give their names and the direction she was taking them wasn’t where their school was. And the plus the kids said they didn’t know her and before anyone could stop it, they descended on the woman. Beating her to purple and then setting her ablaze.
