September 24, 2016 – Pictures: Angry Mob Amputate Thief For Stealing Flat Screen TV At Football Viewing Centre In Akwa Ibom State

An angry mob carried out a disturbing jungle justice on a man around 5:00 am in Akwa Ibom State today Saturday the 24th of September 2016.

The suspect identified as Akam Itiam reportedly sneaked into a popular football viewing centre on Ibiam street in Uyo around 4: 30 this morning and successfully removed one of the flat screen Televisions there but while he was about taking it out, he was caught by vigilant residents who descended on him.

The owner of the viewing centre was contacted and the moment he saw what Itiam did to his business centre, he ordered the mob to deal with him.

Before police could come to his rescue, the mob had already chopped off his right hand.

See graphic photos from the scene of the jungle justice below… VIEWERS DISCRETION IS STRONGLY ADVISED.

    that is not how to do the work of the Lord, that is devil judgment. I feel for him cuz it’s Hunger that lead him to steal, when they caught him ,they will advice him and deal with him as long he has not kill person and it’s just local thief without gun and let him go or handed over to the police. Just Cut off some body hand and that is a pure wickedness. How do you expect that young man to survive in life.

      @Angel boasting, I understand how you are feeling, I felt the same way too but let me be honest with you these thieves also go to people’s home to rob, kill and rape them. How do you justify that? V. When you said the law should have taken its course, I agreed but I don’t think that really works in Nigeria. Most of these thieves after bribing their way out of police net will go back to the street to rob again. The pubic has no hope in our judiciary system. That is why people are now taking law into their own hand. If our system has been designed that armed robbers are spending lengthy time in jail/ death sentencing may be people will have confidence in our judiciary system and this guy hand might not have been chopped off.

    If only the same treatment can be handed over to all our crooked thieves calling themselves leaders of a rich but bankrupt country where a grownup up man steals pot of rice then we would have peace.

    As in sharia so as in the bible is this punishment sanctioned however it is still jungle justice without proper trial before punishment. If we had the true law of God then we will not be in this mess. If some one had amputated the hands of corrupt leaders of the first republic to dissuade others, I can argue Nigeria will be a first world country by now. God has made man and He is wiser than man in all ways. And His ways shall never change no matter the amount of dodgy universal human principles that man can formulate any day.

    I wonder why they did not apply biblical Law instead of Islamic Law?. This is “instant sharia”. Unfortunately this is not Sharia Law bcus it failed to go through due process.

    You people are deceiving yourselves. You condemned Sharia as barbaric but you applied it instantly here. Na you sabi. This is why your politicians don’t want to Sharia law bcus they know their hands would be severed.
