A young man identified as Temitope Adeoye, was allegedly killed and burnt to death after he was wrongly accused of being a thief in Lagos state.
A colleague of Sodiq, @acelady_luck who shared the heartbreaking story online, said Sodiq had just gotten to his bus-stop and was about to pay the motorcycle that will take him home when some boys in the area started shouting thief and pointing at him.
