A notorious thief, identified as Chidi Nwite, who is said to be a special case in that he steals just about anything in sight, was given a disgrace he would never forget in his lifeafter he was caught in a community known as Agba, in Ebonyi State.
According to an eyewitness who posted the disgrace on social media, Nwite is said to have been terrorising villagers in his community and always managed to escape but this time around, luck ran out on him and he was caught while trying to steal a motorcycle.
The crowd quickly descended on him, stripped him naked and gave him the beating of his life while the crowd cheered on as the man who has been making life difficult for him was given a public disgrace.
This is how the eyewitness described the shameful scene:
“Everyday for the Thief… but One day?
This actually happened in my village, a village called Agba in Ebonyi State. The youths in that community vowed not to sleep until the kingpin is caught. The outcome of their search is this.
This thief was a special type of thief. This thief was an artist of theft. Other thieves merely stole everything that was not nailed down, but this thief stole the nails as well.
This terrorist name Chidi Nwite, an indigene of that same village and his gang of armed robbers have been terrorising the village for a quite long time now.
After a successful robbery operation they carried out yesterday, nemesis caught up with their gang leader this morning when the motorbyke used during the operation was found later in his house/shop/bar.”
“Doubt me not, he confirmed it. Luckily for him, policemen attached to that village came to his rescue as he was about to be lynched by the angry mob. The police and the youth are now in search for his gang members. I was there live.”
