KOGI: Angry mob lynch man who fatally stabbed old woman to death

An angry mob lynched a young man identified as Abdulmalik, to death in Ogaminana, Adayi LGA of Kogi State after he allegedly stabbed an old woman to death for pouring water on him.

Reports say the old woman had mistakenly poured water on Abdulmalik while he was passing by a day before and she purportedly apologised for her action immediately.

However, the apology of the woman identified as Avoshi Seberu fell on deaf ears as Abdulmalik visited her home the next day where he confronted the woman and stabbed her to death.

Seberu was reportedly roused from her sleep at her house by Abdulmalik who reportedly asked Seberu to pour that same kolanut water on him again.

“It was a mistake my son,” Seberu reportedly told Abdulmalik.

However, her pleading fell on deaf ears as Abdulmalik stabbed her to death for daring to pour water on him.

Adbulmalik got a pill of his own medicine when angry youths of the community caught up with him and lynched him to death for stabbing the old woman to death for pouring water on him.

    I love this, eye for eye. I think I like what the mob did to Malik, because if they had allowed the police to get involved, they will delay justice and probably allow the culprit to go scot free

      This is a murder case, the police will never allow him go scot free, the justice may be delayed quite alright, but the court will surely deal with him for his insensible action against the woman.

        Forget it, so many murder case has been treated with levity and the murderer goes scot free or probably light punishment, though I am not supporting jungle justice as well. But there is no justice in Nigeria

    The Abdulmalik must be totally in sane! This is the problem with some muslims, they don’t have forgiving spirit, even after the incident occured a day ago, the idiot still went to revenge

      With what you’ve said, can you deduct any sense in it? Is it Christians that don’t revenge? Even traditional worshippers revenge, so you have no point victimizing muslims. The Abdulmalik was just an idiot and unfortunate being. Good he’s been killed

    Case close. Law of karma has taken place, you reap what you sow. Malik reaped what he sowed
