A seven year-old boy was reportedly severely beaten and then burnt to death by a mob today in Lagos

The picture above surfaced on social media this morning. A barbaric mob severely beat the 7-year old boy and subsequently set him ablaze for allegedly stealing garri. Another account said he stole a phone. But the question is, phone or garri theft, is that enough to treat a juvenile this way?

How did we find ourselves here? Why are we allowing the savages in our midst get away with barbaric acts like setting a 7-year old boy ablaze in full glare of the public?
