Bariga was always a busy place at this time, so it wasn’t long before the thief was caught.
“Give me my bag! There was a hundred thousand naira inside!” The aggrieved woman shouted in his direction, as the youths around started their beatings.
But the thief remained silent, preferring to die than to reveal the location of his stash. It wasn’t long before the angry youths finished their job.
Commotion ensued when the dead thief was dragged into the crowd a second time. The stunned trader covered her mouth in shock and grief. The dead man’s expression would stay with her forever.
