A man, simply identified as Paschal, has been beaten to death by members of a community in Anambra State, reports say.
According to the reports, Paschal was driving past a village when some children from the village threw stones at his car and broke his windshield in the process.
Paschal chased after the kids and caught one of them. The other kids ran to inform the community that one of them had been taken by a kidnapper.
The angry community proceeded to strip and beat the defenseless man without listening to his pleas for mercy.
He would have been set ablaze but for the intervention of the police. He was then rushed to the hospital, where he gave up the ghost after an emergency surgery was performed on him.
