Supposed images and videos of the alleged child-thief being lynched were circulated on social media on Wednesday. But Head of Complaint Response Unit (CRU) of the Nigerian Police, Abayomi Shogunle, said on Twitter that no such incident was recorded in Lagos State.

“Report from Lagos Commissioner of @PoliceNG indicates that NO BOY CHILD WAS MOBBED/BURNT in Badagry or any part of the State as circulated on social media,” Shogunle tweeted.

He, however, said a corpse of an adult male was recovered by the police at Orile in Lagos and that the corpse has been deposited at a morgue.
