It has been reported that a 23-year-old man identified as Ejiofor was nearly killed by a mob after he was allegedly caught stealing a Plasma TV in Wumba village, Abuja.
Local reports show that on Thursday, September 24, the suspect sneaked into the home of one Mrs Comfort when she went to buy something by the roadside.
When the woman's 11-year-old son son asked him what he was looking for, he said his mother asked him to remove the TV.

He was beaten to pulp before being taken to the Chief of the community who called the police. The police arrived and whisked him away.
