The bike thieves were paraded around the community after they were caught with a stolen motorcycle, were paraded round the community and forced to look for buyers as they hawked the huge stones.

This is coming after it was reported that a motorcycle thief got more than he bargained for, after a mob burnt him immediately he was apprehended. The incident happened in Yauri town in Kebbi state. The remains of the deceased which badly burnt, was evacuated shortly after.

  1. serves them right they would have even doubled the stone nonsense,instead of them to look for something meaningful to do

  2. Self-help is not good enough but the thieves too should desist. The criminals is better handed to the Police

  3. Just a perfect punishment for them, that is why I hate bike theives likes using bike to steal but am glad they were caught

  4. I advice them to bit him mercilessly so that next time if they thieves he would round away and after that the community should handed him to the police so that they will not take laws into their hands.

  5. See the repercussions of their evil deeds, it does not pay any good to steal. The man who got burnt what was his gain? Nothing.

  6. Nice punishment, I like it.. pls send them to East through foot(trekking). I’m interested to buy the stones

  7. That serves him right,they prefer to take someone else property instead of working for their own

  8. This is not purnishement at all they should give them serious purnishement that will enter their marrow and bones as well.

  9. Stealing is very bad bbacause God does not like it and the person you st old from will be crying. But I like when theynare handed to the police

  10. Asking them to hawk the stones is better than burning them alive. But. I think they should have been handed over to the police instead of taking the law into their hands.

  11. That is good for them.Next time they won’t steal anything from anybody.People are busy struggling to make ends meet and these ones are stealing what they use to make a living

  12. I think they deserve more than that so that others will learn not to engage themselves in such act

  13. Every day is for the thief but one day is for the owner. may all other thieves also meet their Waterloo

  14. Thank God they weren’t set ablazed by angry mobs. They should be handed to police after this and go through their deserved punishment
    I hope crimes rates decrease in our societies

  15. What should make young men of this age to steal if not greed and laziness. Later they will say na buhari cause it

  16. They deserved any type of punishment given to them. Let those in this act retrace their way before they are been caght

  17. That’s what you get if you think stealing is the way forward,instead of you to look for what to do..good for you but i hope they will let you go

  18. They should be punished not killed also its this country that turn them to steal when there’s no work to do but the government should do something about this now

  19. Serves him right.
    Wicked man
    He don’t even care how the people that owns the bike get it
    Let him be prosecuted

  20. Hahaha, so much love this punishment, who then will buy the stone and bail them from their cruel act?

  21. That serves him right since he cannot hustle for his own but waiting for people to keep then he will steal. Good for him

  22. They should be made to face the law even after they have hawked these stones they deserve more punishment than b this.

  23. its this country that turn them to steal when there’s no work to do but the government should do something about this now

  24. Then don’t deserve this, that’s why we have police, they should be handed over to the police, jungle justice is inhumane

    • They don’t deserve this, that’s why we have police, they should be handed over to the police, jungle justice is inhumane

  25. This is funny but it’s actually a lesson to others who are planning on going the same mission as theirs.

  26. The thieves been made to hawk big stones is better than been mobbed and killed by jungle justice.

  27. They serve him right. He wants to steal bike probably to sell. They would have look for a stone more heavier than that and give to him to carry so that next time, he won’t steal again

  28. This kind of stealing. There is hunger in the land, hence fuel for a lazy man to engage in this kind of activities.

  29. They should be handed to the police after the public disgrace. They should be punished by the law

  30. That serves them right instead of engaging in a profitable business they decided to steal bikes

  31. They should be happy they didnt use it to make necklaces for them,desist from stealing they wont listen
