She wrote: “Why jungle justice?! This Monday morning at that! Okay, he is a thief; why not take him to the right authorities. I sat by the window and the way vehicles were been directed to a lane at Alaba-rago had me poke my head out to know the cause for this delay. What an eyesore of a human being been burnt to death. The crowd that gathered to witness such amaze me. No single sane person to do what is needful. No single armed official at the scene to disperse the crowd or prevent this from happening. This young man was just sent to an early grave in a grievous manner.”
