Captors of a suspected thief in Enugu state, Nigeria, made him remove dirty and choked gutters, instead of handing him over the police for prosecution and probably imprisonment.

Richard Blackstone, a Facebook user, posted a photo of the incident on social media after captors of the suspected thief assaulted him, gave him food and soft drinks including a bag of sachet water.

They then handed him a shovel and supervised him to decongest the gutter, rendering him completely exhausted.

“This muscled guy was caught stealing in enugu, He was whipped small. Afterwards, we bought food for him, gave him two bottles of fanta drinks to quench his thirst and supplied him with one bag of sachet water,’’ Richard Blackstone post stated.

‘‘He was then given a shovel to desilt the big gutter leading to my poultry farm road in enugu, What a beautiful thing. He doesn’t need to go to jail. I think this is better than killing them or jail, let’s use them to keep our country clean,” his post further said.
