Another girl beaten, molested, stripped naked over Blackberry theft

Blackberry thief 1 150x150 Another girl beaten, molested, stripped naked over Blackberry theftThis news is everywhere in town that a girl was caught, molested, beaten and even stripped naked for an alleged blackberry theft. Yes the girl in question apparently stole a blackberry phone, though she didn’t succeed.

I am not writing to inform you about it because you already heard or read it several places before now, I write to put a question across to well meaning Nigerians. I could remember what Christ told the Adulterous Woman (John Chapter 8:1-30), he never condemned her, he forgave her.

Talking from the legal point of view, is it wise to brutalize a thief? Or molest a girl by touching her private part because she was caught in the act? This girl in question was beaten, and stripped naked by touts. That reminds me of the killings in the South East few years ago. These killings have really given Nigeria a bad image abroad.
