The 9th day of May 2016 will forever be a date that strikes fear in the hearts of criminals in Warri as a certain Emma B, 22, at the early hours of today met his waterloo as he was another jungle justice subject when an angry mob set him ablaze after he was accused of theft.
According to BTPpoliticsTaday reports, Emma B is popularly known to be a notorious thief who has been terrorising the community called “Marine quarters, Warri, Delta state. It was gathered that he was caught by a vigilante red handed in the early hours of today and considering the current economic hardship ravaging the nation, community members did not hesitate to maim him.
It was also gathered that the accused confessed to various heinous crimes including stabbing 9 people and killing 7 others. All efforts by our correspondents to speak to observers proved futile as they feared that one of Emma’s gang members might be watching secretly around and unleash a personal vendetta on them.
Objectively speaking, it is evident that the current terrible economic conditions of the country could be a major determinant for the increase in crime rate, especially among the Nigerian youths. What is the government doing to salvage the situation? This remains yet another big question among the many questions unanswered.
