An armed robber was beaten mercilessly by an angry mob after he was caught robbing with a toy gun in Edo State yesterday.
In a video clip gone viral on Youtude, the thief said he was from Osun state.
He said he was born in “Osun state” where he also claimed to have come from.
He also said he only attempted to steal because he had not eaten for 3 days, but added, “I no thief.”
Asked what he was doing with a toy gun, he said, “I dey use am thief,” because “since 3 days, I never chop.”
The thief, who pleaded for mercy, was left with wounds everywhere including his mouth and eyes.
