Incensed mob kill youth caught sexually abusing 4-year-old child

78

 

A luckless young man in his early 20s, who was caught sexually molesting a child, has been dispatched to the Great beyond by a mob in Akwa, Anambra State capital.

 

 

The 23-year-old, simply identified as Samuel, was reportedly lynched by some incensed youths after he was forcefully separated from the four-year-old girl.

 

Samuel, a Benue State-born, was caught fondling the child in an attempt to defile her.

 

 

“The deceased mission was to kill my daughter for ritual purposes.

“I brought my daughter to stay with me at the shop so as to keep an eye on her. When she complained she was hungry, I dashed to a nearby shop to buy food.

“It was not long that my attention was drawn to my shop where my daughter was struggling with a man almost half naked. He was kissing her and fondling her breasts, while muttering, ‘must drink your blood’,” the girl’s mother, Ginika, said.

 

 

She added: “Luckily, some boys within the area ran to the scene of the incident and started dragging my daughter with him.

 

“By then, blood was already dropping from her face as the man held her tight in his arms.”

The woman said she had to rush her to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Confirming the incident, the State Police Command’s spokesman, DSP Haruna Mohammed, said:“ The deceased was probably under the influence of hard drugs.

“He captured the four-year-old girl and was molesting her sexually before he was arrested by some civilians who carried out jungle justice on him.’’

 

He said investigations into the incident were being stepped up while police have also launched a man-hunt for the perpetrators of the jungle justice.

 

“When the police arrived at the scene, the boy, who was probably in his late 20s, was lying motionless on the ground while his assailants had dispersed.

 

 

“He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was confirmed dead,’’ Mohammed said.
