November 16, 2016 – Nigerians Demand Justice For Boy Burnt To Death In Badagry Lagos, Police Looking For Killers

The video of a child allegedly lynched and set ablaze in Lagos has caused outrage on social media with Nigerians demanding the immediate prosecution of his killers.

In the short video, the boy said to be seven-year-old was caught while trying to steal people’s phones and money at Orile-Iganmu.

Another report alleged that the incident occurred at Badagry, adding that the child was not the thief but only attempted to stop three men who later fled.

Although it could not be ascertained where the incident occurred and what led to the mob action, the video, pictures of the incident showed blood gushing from the kid’s head as his attackers meted jungle justice on him.

After beating him up mercilessly, a tyre was forced through his head and he was burnt to death.
Efforts to get the information from those that originally posted it on Saturday proved abortive as it was discovered that the information has been deleted.

However, Ibommedia screen munched the pictures posted by one Oladipupo Raphael Dare captioned: “Lagos thief rest in bad. Good bye to you ooo”.

His post sparked condemnation from his Facebook friends who believed it was inappropriate and insensitive.

The public outcry over the video moved the police in Lagos to appeal to people with information on the incident to assist.

It was gathered that both the Divisional Police Officers at Orile and Badagry were on their toes on Wednesday trying to locate where the mob action took place within their jurisdiction without success.

Contacted, the command’s spokesperson, Dolapo Badmos, a Superintendent of Police (SP) said:

“Studying the video to ascertain if it occurred. Got the report through social media. If established that incident actually occurred, the command would ensure that those behind it are fished out and brought to justice.

  2. Things will get better if Nigeria youth will be unleashing their anger on the politicians instead of this type of Jungle justice, especially to this little kid if ever it’s true.

    I mean,why is it hard for the youths to unite and match to government houses and demand for their rights, if things continue the way they are,then no future for Nigerians,especially those residing in Nigeria.

  3. The barbaric and inhuman act of burning a 7 year old boy alive has actually proved how backward,evil,uncivilized and mindless malevolent kind of people we are in this country. What on earth could have justify the gruesome murder of this underage boy? The
    Upsurge and speed at which nigerians are taking laws into their hands when their is an issue has now gotten to a point it should be declare an epidemic. Human life no longer matter to people in this country even when it involved a small child. Many of them passing this jungle justice are criminals themselves that are not clean or innocent for a bit.

    It is also sad that police in lagos state have not being able to ascertain the district where this murderous killing took place. They have to redouble their effort in their search and uncover those behind this savagery act and ensure they are swiftly brought to justice.

  4. I’m totally heart broken and speechless cried all through reading this. BOKO HARAM BUSY DOING ALL SORT OF DEVILISH THINGS AND NON OF THESE SENSELESS PEOPLE THAT KILLED THIS LITTLE BOY DID NOT GO AND CARRY JUNGLE JUSTICE ON THEM. God have mercy on us for death of this little Boy.

  5. Jungle justice is now the trend of this year, many people have been burnt to death heartlessly and now a poor boy?
    My heart bleeds #sobs

  6. people with heart of stone repent for the kingdom is near,
    Is of heart disgusting that people have lot charity that oriented man.

  7. Police Should Go And Arest All The Murderers That Kill The Little Innocent Boy And When They Finish Arresting Them, Then The Nigeria Government Should Give All Of Them (murderes) Guns And Send Them All To Borno And Maduguri To Go And Fight Boko Haram Since They Know How To Kill. That Is Only What I See,

  8. many Americans and European don’t like going to church or mosque but Nigerians attend church and mosque the most in whole world but yet it citizens are coward,brainless,illitrate, they ain’t got no good job,they don’t feed well,they live in poverty ,they don’t live as one people,yet they still claim to have a God,how stupid.. which God sees it citizen suffer and struggle?

  9. I first read about this case and it had it that the boy stole Garri not handset or any other thing. Now, they have change the matter. Can you imagine that? Common Garri has led to this gruesome killing of a helpless infant.

    Nigerians are a bunch of hypocites. A 7yr old boy mercilessly beating and burnt to death due to unbearable hunger caused by buhari‘s clueless Administration.

    Yet politicians are busy stealing Billions of national treasury instead of killing them same, we tend to celebrate and crown them with unmerited Titles.

    But a desperate hungry perhaps homeless orphan stole common garri, the cheapest and poorest kind of food and they they murder him like one who has kidnaped a president of a country. SHAME!!!

    I take a stroll…

  10. @MON GOD BLESS U 4 DAT COMMENT. I WONDER THE WAY SOME PEOPLE REASON. WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO OUR POLITICIANS STEALING OUR MONEY? IF U ARE ANGRY, BE ANGRY WITH OUR GOVERNMENT AND NOT INNOCENT CITIZENS. IRRESPECTIVE OF WHAT THE BOY DID, THEY WOULD’NT HAVE KILLED HIM. IT IS UNCIVILIZED. MY QUESTION IS ARE THERE NO POLICE STATION AROUND THE INCIDENT? HOW COME NOBODY REPORTED THE MATTER TO THE POLICE. NA WA OOO
