There is a saying that ‘everyday for the thief, one day for the owner’. Two suspected thieves got more than they bargained for after they were allegedly nabbed for stealing in Benue state. It was gathered that the men were tracked down by village youths after allegedly stealing a motorcycle in Atakpa area of Otukpo. They were forced to carry rocks on their heads and paraded round town by the villagers in a bid to serve as a deterrent to others.
Social media users who came across the story had more good things to say about the punishment meted out to te thieves than bad. Here are some comments gathered;
“Better than doing the jungle justice of a thing. Why won’t they go steal from the rich people and let the poor man be.”
“They’ll be hawking these for a while tho… I don’t see any potential buyers on ground.”
“Stealing is not an option for being broke… That serves them right… There are greater opportunities out there… I don’t just understand some Nigerians.”
“We all should be ready to do this to our House of Reps Members and Senators whom misappropriate funds allocated for developmental projects in their constituencies and see if they will not change their evil ways but No the communities will be giving them Chieftaincy titles ! That is why we are where we are today in #OsibanjosVoice!”
