According to Daily Trust, a middle-aged man beaten to death for allegedly kidnapping children in Zonkwa, Kaduna state has resurrected in a morgue. A police source said police made an attempt to rescue the man from a mob in a marketplace but they were overpowered. The officer said the claim that the man had abducted children hasn’t been established and no missing child was reported in the area.
An eyewitness Lado Jibo said the man was actually a fish seller not a kidnapper who had frequented the area before the incidence. He said the man who was known as Yakubu was attacked by youths who claimed that he was found with abducted kids.
“They lynched him and left his corpse in the market. He was picked up by the police and taken to hospital but he regained consciousness when they were about to take him into the morgue”. He said Yakubu resurrected about five hours after he lost consciousness.
Police did not confirm the incidence.
