Mob Kills Man Wrongly Accused Of Stealing Phone, Throws Body Into Lagoon by ijustdey: 9:34pm On Jul 10
In a grim case of jungle justice, Olamide Omolede, a 22-year-old man, was on Monday killed by hoodlums in Badore, Ajah, Lagos after he was wrongly accused of stealing a mobile phone.

The incident occurred on Monday evening, the victim’s father said.

PREMIUM TIMES gathered that following days of epileptic power supply in the community, Mr Omolede, who is also a tricycle rider, went to a nearby store to charge his handset for a fee.

Afterwards, he left the store for his house. However, after some minutes, a woman whose name had not been provided at the time of filing this report arrived at Mr Omolede’s house with some hoodlums, alleging he stole her phone where they were charging.

The hoodlums mauled him to death and threw his body into a nearby lagoon.

A witness, Tunde Afolabi, told PREMIUM TIMES that the deceased was first paraded half-Unclad to Iyalaye Store where the alleged theft occurred.

“After he eventually died, the thugs threw him into the lagoon. But we concerned people of the community paid Egun people to help trace the corpse after we heard the incident. The corpse was brought out of the river this morning,” he said.

He said the phone which was reported stolen was later found with the son of the woman who had accused Mr Omolede of stealing it.


Victim’s parent speaks:

Francis Omolede, the victim’s father, also spoke with PREMIUM TIMES on the tragedy.

“I was called on Monday by the sister of the victim that her brother was accused of stealing a phone. After the thugs brought by the woman who accused him of stealing eventually killed him, they threw him into the river to avoid traces.

“It was afterwards that the phone was found with the son of the woman who wrongly accused my son. The police have arrested the woman and some of the thugs who perpetrated the act,” he told PREMIUM TIMES Wednesday.

Also, the traditional head of the community identified as Baale Jikoji told PREMIUM TIMES that the matter would be properly handled.

“We have met and we will definitely address the matter”, he told our correspondent.


Police react

The police officer in charge of the matter, who simply identified himself as Inspector Sunday, told PREMIUM TIMES that proper investigation would be carried out.

“We have arrested the woman who accused the victim and some thugs that carried out the act. Some of them are still at large but we will definitely arrest and carry out a proper investigation,” he said.

Following the death of Mr Omolede, tricycle riders on Badore-Ajah road blocked the major road to express their anger over the incident.

This the main reason I hate jungle jungle justice both on social media and offline. Someone will accuse you and before you know, they will start crucifying you without evidence. The Accuser and the people that killed him, how would they feel when they know that the man they accused of theft and killed is innocent?

And that was how the innocent guy died for a crime he didn't commit. How much is a phone compared to his life?

Accusing someone of a crime without proof is simply madness. Hope the law swings in the right direction here.

Someone was accused, you didn't see the stolen item on him or have any evidence whatsoever that he actually did what he was accused of yet you went ahead to kill him?

"When the arrow of God is no longer at ease, things fall apart."
The crisis in National Union of Road Transport Worker is taking another dimension with Alhaji Agbede plotting and planting the seed of trouble in Lagos NURTW. The basis of selfish interest of the Chairman is not farfetched from the recent defeat of Agbede in the just concluded national NURTW election where the embattled Lagos Chairman loss gallantly to the incoming National president of the Union.
NURTW isn't a thuggery or tout association but a union of people with high Calibre and integrity who has the passion for the defense of our democracy and unity of the nation in general.
Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede is gradually planting the forbidden tree that might bear a forbidden fruits like the biblical apple, in the midst of the union, the report fetched uphold the loose to Alhaji Baruwa as the real reason of sudden planting of the forbidden tree in Lagos State NURTW in a way to put the Lagos State chapter into unnecessary chaos and imbroglio before the expiration of his tenure.
Every union has its modus operandi of operation and electoral practice which ought to be respected all times without hindrances and bye passing of processes that will champion in the new elected executives of the Union.
History in one way or another always stumble on individuals who take personal interest and godfatherism above collective interest and that is what Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede symbolises. Prior before 2015 election, Lagos NURTW has been put in the purse of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in which some millions of naira was collected from Chief Olabode George to work in support of PDP. Though every citizen is entitled to freedom of association but not to make the union or association an appendage of PDP.
The history is about to repeat itself with the introduction of "save my shame" agenda of Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede to militarily impose one Wale Ajilo as his successor of Lagos NURTW Chairman and what does the union stand to gain? Another PDP NURTW, No respecter of electoral processes and militarisation of the union. Similar actions of militarisation and godfatherism made Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede to loose woefully to Alhaji Baruwa when it was reported that: the street of Oshogbo was turned to a shooting range by the hoodlums of Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede.
People of this nature and his stooges like: Wale Ajilo are not fit to be in the affairs of governance, a scenario where members of NURTW were shut out to elevate Wale Ajulo behind close door. Is that what democracy preaches?
Lagosians must come to the aids of rescuing the Union from wolves and lions, stakeholders must halt the steps of this Adolf Hitler of NURTW. And the antention of security agencies of the state is called to checkmate the excesses of Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede and Wale Ajilo before turning the state into Anarchism.

You shall know the truth and it shall set you free.

The devil works with lies, that's why Jesus insists that you should know the truth.

The devil tells you that you can never amount to anything in life....while the truth says that weeping may endure for a night,

That joy comes in the morning.

The devil says that your sins are far more than what God can forgive.

The truth says that even if your sins are so red like scarlet, (extremely terrible) he Jesus promised to wash them all away and give you the ability to live a holy life.

Come to the truth and be set free from the bondages that was put in place by the lies of the devil.

These lies are in every facets of life.
Accept Jesus today as your Lord and saviour.
