Gang of suspected teenage robbers cried out for compassion as
they were tortured after allegedly caught robbing in Ikotun, Lagos.
Igando and Ikotun residents in Lagos State held a fearful vigil on
Monday night, April 13, as robbers allegedly went from house to house.
Residents of Ikotun wanted to take laws into their hands and caught some teenagers and then tortured them.
A video from the scene shows the teens weeping and begging for help as they were flogged with a hot rod and tortured.
Someone in the video is heard saying that one of the perpetrators is aged 14.
It comes one day after residents of Iyana-Ipaja in Lagos witnessed the same
thing and took the hashtag # Lagosunrest to Twitter to raise awareness about it.
