He kept begging and explaining that he did not do it.

He cried out for all to hear that he did not steal anything from anyone.

But the angry mob had accused him, prosecuted him and labelled him as guilty. They also began what appear to be his sentence to physical pain.

An eye witness told Bounce News that the beggar pick-pocketed the ATM card and the cash from a passenger who sat close to him in Keke Marwa.

The passenger raised alarm after realizing that his valuable had gone missing while alighting. 

The Keke driver stopped and all passengers were thoroughly searched. It was in the process that the cash and the ATM were found on the beggar.

The accused was eventually saved from the mob by soldiers who arrested and handed him over to the police for prosecution.
