A 20-year-old man identified as Ternenge Ayankaa Lab was stripped naked and publicly disgraced after it was alleged that he stole chicken in Benue state.
The incident happened at Ugyie community in Vandeikya Local Government Area of the state on Tuesday, March 2.
The mob action has been widely condemned by members of the community on Facebook. One Labe Joyce said the young man didn’t deserve the public disgrace for stealing only chicken.
“He stole only chicken and you people are disgracing him like this, please don’t get me wrong I’m not saying what he did is good but you people should please temper justice with mercy” she wrote.
