A yet-be-identified rider is seen being beaten by an angry mob after a child was found inside the courier in a trending video on social media.
VANTAGE NEWS understands that the incident took place in Sangotedo area of Lagos State in the early hours of Saturday, 12 March.
Full details of the incident are, however, still unclear as of the time of filing this report.
In the video which is widely circulating on social media, the dispatch rider could be seen beaten by the angry mob who found the child inside the box.
From the video, one person from the crowd can be heard screaming, “This is the child that was abducted. Beat him very well, this is the child that he stole.”
The rider was later seen seated between a commercial motorcyclist and another man carrying the baby and was apparently being driven to a nearby police station.
This is only a few days away from the ugly incident where a 22-year-old fashion designer, Bamise, was hideously murdered after she boarded a BRT vehicle in Lagos.
