A suspected thief will have God to thank for giving him a second chance after escaping death by the whiskers in Bayelsa.
An angry mob has taught a thief a bitter lesson after he was beaten mercilessly for stealing foodstuff in Bayelsa state.
The suspect allegedly stole oil, maggi and salt and was almost beaten to death by a baying crowd at Tombia roundabout in Yenagoa, the state capital.
In an incident which was captured on camera, the suspect can be seen receiving mass beating from the mob who descended on him mercilessly and left him bloodied.
A man rushed to get a huge stone/weapon which he planned to use on the suspected thief but was restrained by others as the man begged not to be killed.
