A few days ago, a yahoo boy was almost burned to death after he was allegedly caught while trying to use a little 6-year-old boy for rituals in Sapele, Delta state.
According to reports, the young man pretended to be mentally unstable in order to carry out the evil act but unfortunately for him, he was captured while trying to blow powder (which had cowries round it) on the boy in a bid to hypnotize him.
He was beaten mercilessly by the mob. It was also revealed that the young man was making some incantations during the beating before he was stabbed in the chest with a sharp object.
However, the police later came to his rescue and dragged him to a station in the area for further interrogation.
