Horror As Couple Beat Burglar To Death In Osun State

The police have declared wanted an Ilesha-based couple, Samson and Omolabake Babarinde, for allegedly beating to death a suspected burglar, who was caught while attempting to steal from an artisan’s workshop, according to a report by Punch.

The couple and some other residents of the Breweries Street, Imo, Ilesha, reportedly beat to death one Taiwo, whose surname and address could not be ascertained, on Sunday, August 11, 2019, after he was apprehended around 10pm while attempting to break into the workshop.

The couple, after the burglar had been killed, reportedly dumped his remains in a location on the Ife-Akure Expressway and fled.

A security source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said two persons had been arrested in connection with the crime, while police personnel were said to be on the trail of the two main suspects and others, who participated in the killing.

  • The never do the right thing, because they have no reason to beat to death a thief no matter the offenses of the thief committed; that's the reason why we have the arm forces in Nigeria.

  • They were wrong by killing him, he stole right, but the right thing would have been tracing him, then report him to the police. 

    That's the right thing they would have done.

  • Taking law into their hands by beating a petty theif to death is very wrong and it is against the nigeria constitution, they should be found and jailed.

  • Beating him to stupor or death despite his crime is not advisable, turning him in should've the best thing to do..

  • What the couple did is bad. They should have handed him over to the security agents and not taking laws into their hands. Though theyay have done it to serve and a deterrent to others.

  • Well...this is jungle justice,according to the Nigeria constitution catching someone in the act does not justify jungle justice...so every body involved in the killing of this young man should be put behind bars...

  • This is very wrong and I pray they are apprehended.. Stealing shouldn't results to killing.

  • The couple were not supposed to lay hands on the burgalar, the best thing the could have done is to hand him over to police who are the legal body to handle such cases.

  • Only God can help us in this country, the couple need to serve their punishment under the law. Killing the burglar is totally evil heart which is trending in our nation today instead of handing them to the right security agency.

  • What they did was absolutely wrong, how could they take laws into their hands, they would have just handed over to the police which they know on a normal stealing case, that man or guy won't die

  • This Issue of instant judgment and punishment by the Civilians should be stopped in Nigeria without proper investigation, even if the Man has been confirmed to be guilty the next thing to do is to hand  him over to the police men this couple have not done the right things with act they should be arrested.

  • They were wrong, if they are right why did they run away. It's very bad to take the laws into your hands, plus it's not their property he was trying to steal now they might spend the rest of their days in cell

  • People tend to do foolish things calling the police and apprehending suspect was enough .NO it was bad of them to send him to hell now they themselves are going to jail for taking the law into their hands

  • It would have been better if this burglar has not died. But now that he's dead. I think I should make people realize that jungle justice isn't good, neither is stealing good...  Do not steal so that you won't die

  • Taking law into one hands is very wrong, if we do not have the power to  create  a person why then should feel at ease wasting a life? Giving people second chances is better

  • How will they choose to beat an individual although in a wrong  act to death that's really uncalled for and should be condemned the best thing to have done was to apprehend him and hand in over to the police for investigation.

  • They made a wrong decision  by killing the  person 

    they should  have  reported  the person to the  police or drag the  person  down to the police  station  than killing the thief

  • The issue of lynching a criminal should be highly discouraged. It usually amount to gruesome outcomes. As civilised and not barbaric citizens we should leave the justice to the law and not take law into our hands.

    Therefore, I say what they did was wrong.

  • Is not the right thing...every sinner gets a second chance but unfortunate we humans are not like that they could have just handed him to the proper security agency

  • I don't think they did the right thing . No matter what, you don't have the right to take someone's life , talkless of dumping his remains on the road side. That's against the law of both man and God

  • It's very wrong to have done that, why should they take laws into their own hands  Wheather it was a mistake or intentional. So the law must take it full course. They have opportunity to prove themselves otherwise. A lesson to us all, once such burglars are arrested, they should be handed over to the authority.

  • Irrespective of the wrong act. Performing the so called jungle law in a society where it is evident that there is law is so wrong of them. Personally i feel, this couple should be dealt with to the fullest extent of the law since the thief has paid for his sins by dying so they should also pay for murdering someone

  • Junge justice should never be resorted to, it's barbaric and evil. After apprehending him, he should have been handed over to the police for the law to take its full effect. Murder should never be the answer to robbery. If they did not think what they did to that young man was wrong, then why dump his body and flee? I hope the police investigates this thoroughly.

  • What the couple did was uncalled for. After overpowering the burglar they should have tied him down and called the police but instead they beat him to death. The couple displayed an act of callousness and should also be considered criminals. I hope they are later apprehended and brought to justice.

  • If you have been rubbed before, you will understand how painful it is to be rubbed, stealing is a criminal offense and in some cases rubbers have their victims killed. But if the victims overpowered the rubber then is fine. The only thing is they shouldn't have run away but go to the police and explain how it happened.
