A man was almost lynched to death yesterday afternoon after he was allegedly caught while trying to use a little boy of about six years old for rituals in Sapele area of Delta state.
According to reports, the guy who claims to be an internet fraudster, a.k.a. ‘Yahoo boy’, pretended to be mentally unstable in order to carry out the nefarious act.
It was gathered that he was apprehended while trying to use/blow powder (which had cowries round it) on the little boy in a bid to hypnotize him.
The suspect was immediately captured and beaten mercilessly by the mob. During the beating, he was said to be openly making some incantations for reasons best known to him, before he was stabbed in the chest with a sharp object.
The police later came to his rescue as the suspect was dragged to a station for further interrogation.
