A young boy narrowly escaped being lynched by a mob in Delta State after he was wrongly accused of stealing female underwear, according to a Facebook user.
A girl had raised alarm, accusing the young boy of stealing her underwear, an accusation which he blatantly denied.
Angry that he was still lying after the panties were found in his bag, the crowd that gathered as a result of the false alarm proceeded to dish him the beating of his life.
The boy was only rescued by some good Samaritans before it was later discovered that the owner of the underwear had lied just to get the boy punished.
The said girl had placed the undies in the boy’s bag by herself not knowing that her younger sister of around 5-7 years was seeing her when she was doing so. And it only took the kid's confession to get the young man his freedom from what could have been another disastrous jungle justice.
After finding out that the young man was innocent, the mob switched their attention to the lady, beating her mercilessly beforeparading her around the community.
