A 17-year-old boy identified as John Omale has been tortured to death by vigilante group for stealing goods worth N200,000 at Ofabo in Ofu Local Government Area of Kogi State.

John was alleged to have stolen the goods on Monday from a certain Igbo trader, who subsequently reported the theft to the Kogi State vigilante services.

The chairman of the vigilante reportedly ordered that the suspect be tortured in his presence which eventually resulted to his death.

Following his death, angry youths of the community went on rampage and razed shops, houses belonging to Igbo traders.

Houses in the community, beer depots as well as the office of the Kogi State Vilgilante Service and that of their Commandant, Ojodomo Benjamin were set ablaze.
