Ternenge Ayankaa Lab, a 20-year-old man from Benue county, was stripped naked and publicly humiliated after being accused of stealing a chicken.
On Tuesday, March 2, the incident occurred in the Ugyie community of the Vandeikya Local Government Area of the county.
On Facebook, members of the group have mostly denounced the mob action. According to one Labe Joyce, the young man did not deserve public humiliation for stealing just chicken.
“He stole only chicken and you people are disgracing him like this, please don’t get me wrong I’m not saying what he did is good but you people should please temper justice with mercy”.
Veronica Gwabi: “There are thieves among this gathering but because they are not caught. Don’t take laws into your hands hand him over to the right authorities. Why strip him naked.”
