They like to be called DC, Dansoman City. Unfortunately the Police in DC have a totally different kind of DC to deal with this morning, a Dansoman Corpse.
Citifmonline reports that two gentlemen attempted to rob a gentleman who was bathing of his wallet in the capital suburb Wednesday night. Unfortunately for them, the gentleman came out, saw the two, and raised an alarm that alerted residents in the area.
One of the duo managed to make his escape, but the second guy was unfortunate enough to be captured. In this vigilante system of ours, he was subsequently lynched, then set ablaze.
Police reported to the scene later on, carting the body away to the morgue. The victim is yet to be identified, but Police are still carrying out investigations.
This kind of mob justice is nothing new in this country; and it often befalls these kinds of petty criminals. Trying to lift someone’s wallet does not in any way warrant a gruesome death at the hands of an angry mob with deflecting their frustrations with life.
Another side effect is a totally innocent person could be lynched before the facts of the issue have been determined. It’s not unheard of, and it’s exactly the reason we have the law and courts to dole out punishments in such cases.
