A young man on Wednesday escaped death by a whisker after an angry mob descended on him over a false accusation of theft.
It was gathered that the man was falsely accused of stealing panties belonging to a lady he had gone to visit.
An eyewitness identified as Yenne Ebobrah who shared the story on his Facebook page said the lady had raised a false alarm that the man stole her panties which prompted the mob to rush to the scene and started beating the accused.
He said the man was almost lynched before the six-year-old sister of the accuser exposed her sister as a liar and told the mob she was trying to frame up the young man. The girl told the mob she saw her sister hiding the panties in the bag of the young man.
Yenne added that the quick intervention of some kindhearted Nigerians saved the man from being killed by the mob.
It was gathered that the incident happened in Delta state.
“What a life? There’s nothing we will not see in this big world. It was unfortunate that this one in particular happened in my presence in AG-CITY .
“As you can the pictures, the boy was accused of stealing pants by that girl. He was even beaten by some angry mobs if not for the intervention of some good Samaritans who came for his rescue.
“When I got to the scene I also asked the boy if truly he did it and he said he didn’t that he thinks Someone is trying to set him up. To shorten the long story, the girl’s younger sister of about 6-7years old girl confessed that the boy was innocent that she saw her elder sister with the pants in her hand and putting them in the boys bag.
“As usual the angry mobs ordered for her beat and she was beaten and ill-treated and later confessed that she did it because the boy was been pompous.
“According to her, the boy told her he has cars and houses in Sapele, so that was why she accused him of stealing the pants. The boy was later freed while the girl got the beaten of her life.”
