Metro Jungle Justice: Man Sets Son Ablaze for Stealing From Beggars



A middle-aged man in Kwara state has personally delivered jungle justice on his 22-year old son.

Sola Akangbe according to reports, was accused of stealing an undisclosed amount of money from some roadside beggars on Friday. He was apprehended and handed over to his father.

The father, a commercial driver, allegedly drove his son to a nearby bush on Omu-Aran-Isanlu-Isin road, tied his hands and legs before setting him ablaze.

The son, a wheelbarrow pusher, suffered high degree burns and was rushed to the hospital by rescuers.

He was confirmed dead by doctors at Ajisafe Hospital, Omu-Aran, on Saturday morning.

The mother, a trader based in Odo-Owa, another suburb, was informed by a friend of the incident.

According to The News Agency of Nigeria, she acknowledged that Sola was an unrepentant troublesome fellow, but expressed shock at the father’s action.

She disclosed that although she gave birth few weeks ago, she had divorced Kehinde about seven years ago as a result of irreconcilable differences.

Mr Ajayi Okasanmi, the Police Public Relation Officer in the state, confirmed the incident, saying that the suspect was already in police custody and that investigation was ongoing.
