A video surfaced online where a man was seen praying for a man he caught stealing his cable.
Petty thieves are stoned, burglars are beaten to death or lynched. In many African countries citizens administer justice because they have little trust in the police.
It is an act of barbarism for anybody to apply jungle justice on suspects, no matter how weighty the allegation against such a person might be.
According to the Nigerian constitution ,"Every person has the right to life, and no one shall be deprived intentionally of his life, save the execution of the sentence of a court in respect of a criminal offence of which he has been found guilty in Nigeria.”
Nigeria is the most religious country in the world and ironically, it also holds the unwanted record of the nation with the highest rate of jungle justice in Africa.
Here is a funny moment a thief was caught and instead of getting justice, the owner of the electric cable stolen, decided to pray for the thief.
