Man Who Stole A Pot Of Soup killed By Mob

A Mob today in Calabar, the Cross River State capital
butchered and set ablaze a young man beside the fence of the Atu Secondary
School along Goldie Street for allegedly robbing a woman of a pot of soup while
two of his accomplices managed to escape.
The hoodlum in the company of two others are alleged to have
attacked the woman in the wee hours of today at No 3, Mayne Avenue Extension in
Calabar South after they were attracted by the aroma of the soup the woman was
warming in readiness to eat with her children before heading for the early
morning mass at the nearby St. Bernard’s Catholic Church and decided to cart
the pot of soup away.
A young man who lives in the same premises with the lady
said as the robbers were about to get out of the compound with the pot of soup,
the woman raised alarm prompting neighbours to go after them and caught up with
the one carrying the pot of soup and dealt him several machete cut before
setting him ablaze.

“It was almost dawn when the boys attacked the woman and
carried her pot of soup and when they were about getting out of the compound,
she raised alarm and people came out and pursued them and caught up with this
one”. A Vanguard source who prefers anonymity said
He said the boy was not able to run as fast as his
accomplices were because he did not drop the pot of soup but was running with
it which gave the mob the chance to catch up with him and butcher him.
“This is not the first time they have come to our compound
to steal. Last week they removed the car battery of one of our neioghbours and
once night falls, they waylay people, especially ladies around Goldie by Atu
and snatch their handbags and phones”, he said.
At the time of writing the report there was no sign of the
presence of security agents there while the body was still lying by the Atu
Secondary School fence.
