An angry mob in Petroleum down, a suburb of Dansoman area in Accra, the capital of Ghana, took jungle justice to another dimension when they apprehended a young man trying to steal a wallet and promptly set the thief on fire before the police could come to his rescue.

According to Ghana's Citi FM news, the thief was caught in the act and rather than hand him over to the police, the crowd, after beating the daylight out of him, hung a tire around his neck, poured petrol on him and set him ablaze.

An eyewitness reportedly told Citi FM reporters:

"They were actually two in number who attempted stealing from a man’s residence as he was having his bath. The man whose age I can’t tell, was lynched by the residents and lit up while the other escaped."
