Nigerians are demanding justice for a seven-year-old boy whowas allegedly lynched in the Badagry area of Lagos for stealing garri. Reports and images making the rounds on the social media indicatethat the boy was set ablaze after being beaten up. Many Nigerians are calling for an investigation into theincident and an end to jungle justice.
So the best option was to burn this boy cos he stole #Garri?

I wonder why the poor are so wicked to one another. You'll never hear of someone in Ikoyi or Lekki getting burnt alive for stealing. #Garri
