According to Amarachi Ojiakor, the thief while trying to steal the bike from its owner, set the owner ablaze. He first threatened the young man to release the bike keys to him, but the owner refused and fought back.

The victim was found minutes after by sympathizers who took him to the hospital. The thief was later arrested by the police.
Unfortunately, the young man who was set ablaze passed away this morning. So, angry youths went to the police station, brought out the thief and burnt him by the road side in front of the station as can be seen in a video posted online.
