The suspect on his knees after he was caught allegedly placing charm in front of a shop in a market.
An angry mob almost lynched a man for allegedly placing juju at a market stall in Garriki Market, Awkunanaw, Enugu, in order to recover a debt owed him.
The incident according to Guardian, occurred yesterday, March 1, when sixty -year-old man identified as Amedu, who claimed to be from Kogi state was caught early in the morning burying a charm in front of the shop of a female yam seller identified as Chidi, who was yet to pay him the remaining N17,000 of over a N100,000 debt.
Amedu reportedly resorted to using juju against his debtor when she did not pay the debt at the stipulated time and after Amedu had made several attempts to recover his money.
However, luck unfortunately ran against him as people who passed by raised alarm when they saw him burying the charm at the shop.
This attracted an irate mob that tore Amedu to shreds before help could come through the intervention of the market chairman, who brought in the police to quell the situation.
