The cobbler who attempted to escape was caught by some angry mobs who set him ablaze after being battered. “Before we knew what was happening, the ‘Aboki’ had removed his dagger, which I believe is poisonous and stabbed Eteyen in the stomach. Eteyen fell down while the Aboki packed his things and wanted to run.
“As he wanted to run away, people in the compound raised the alarm and youths in the area chased and caught him and before you he could say anything, they had found a tyre and the boy was already on fire,” narrated an eye witness. There is, however, no police report or confirmation on the incident yet. Nigerian and World News providing global current Nigerian and World news online. Read more »
