Thieves set boy, 12, on fire so he won

A boy was reportedly set on fire by thieves in Kogi state to prevent him from identifying them as the people responsible for the theft of a mobile phone.
12-year-old Ojonugwa knew the identity of the thieves who stole a phone in Ogugu, Olamaboro LGA in Kogi state, so the criminals abducted him and took him on their motorcycle to a location where they asked him to lie down and close his eyes. He did and they poured gasoline on him and set him
on fire, according to online reports.
