A Nigerian man has been arrested again just weeks after he was rescued from jungle justice on his last attempt to steal a phone.

The man identified as Chinedu was first lynched at Iyanaoworo while trying to steal a phone and was beaten to a coma by a mob.


Barely three months later, he made another attempt to steal and was caught and arrested by the authorities this time.

According to reports by Lagospedia, he was arrested by the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) and has been sentenced for his crimes.
