#BuhariMustGo: 7yr old boy beaten in Lagos for stealing GARRI due to unbearable hunger caused by Buhari’s cluelessness
Well, he’s not 7 years old like earlier speculated but he’s still a young boy and from voices heard in the video it’s alleged that he stole a phone and not garri as earlier reported.
It’s also alleged that he wanted to pull off the owner of the phone before he was apprehended, beaten. This happened at Alafia along Badagry-Expressway of Lagos last Saturday. Nothing warrants such barbaric act. Nothing!
