Mob sets man on fire for stealing pot of soup in Calabar

This is a totally bizarre sad story! not right to steal totally totally wrong!but should death be his punishment for a pot of soup??  

Report by Vanguard..
CALABAR- A MOB on Sunday morning in Calabar, the Cross River State capital butchered and set ablaze a young man beside the fence of the Atu Secondary School along Goldie Street for allegedly robbing a woman of a pot of soup while two of his accomplices managed to escape.

More when you continue..

The hoodlum in the company of two others are alleged to have attacked the woman in the wee hours of the Sunday at No 3, Mayne Avenue Extension in Calabar South and were attracted by the aroma of the soup the woman was warming in readiness to eat with her children before heading for the early morning mass at the nearby St. Bernard’s Catholic Church and decided to cart the pot of soup away.

A young man who lives in the same premises with the lady said as the robbers were about to get out of the compound with the pot of soup, the woman raised alarm prompting neighbours to go after them and caught up with the one carrying the pot of soup and dealt him several machete cut before setting him ablaze.

“It was almost dawn when the boys attacked the woman and carried her pot of soup and when they were about getting out of the compound, she raised alarm and people came out and pursued them and caught up with this one”. 

Our source who prefers anonymity said
He said the boy was not able to run as fast as his accomplices were because he not drop the pot of soup but was running with it which gave the mob the chance to catch up with him and butcher him. “This is not the first time they have come to our compound to steal. Last week they removed the car battery of one of our neighbors and once night falls, they waylay people, especially ladies around Goldie by Atu and snatch their handbags and phones”
