Four Beaten and Burnt to Death [WATCH VIDEO HERE] Viewer Discretion Strongly Advised
When i received this video from a Simply Samad Reader, i could barely stop shaking my head at the ease at which people take the lives of others in broad daylight.
Many would recall the horrors of the four undergraduates of the University of Port Harcourt in Nigeria who were battered and eventually burnt to death in public glare.
Following the public outcry and condemnation that followed this, i would expected the nation and the African in general to take a cue from that particular dark episode yet nothing appears to have changed as human life still appears to hold as much significance as that of a cockroach.
In this video, you would notice that the four people who were beaten, dragged, pummeled and eventually set ablaze are very elderly people; with their age range visibly falling between the 60 and 80 years mark.
Details of what their offense was still eludes me but so far, what sources revealed was that they were accused of practicing witchcraft... and you will watch as they paid for it with their lives.
Watch the video below and tell me if you think this barbaric act of burning men and women in public will ever come to an end.
