Two hoodlums were in the wee hours of Wednesday was almost butchered after they were caught attempting to steal a car battery from a car parked at Atekong Drive in Calabar.

The hoodlums according to an eye witness were caught by some young men who have been keeping watch around the area following incessant cases of car battery theft.

According to the witness, the thieves had stealthily opened the burnet of the car and removed the battery from the car and were about to run away when the youths apprehended them and descended on them with the  beating of their lives.

“They were stripped naked and machetes were used to butcher their heads  and backs with blood gushing out of their bodies and to avoid police trouble, the youths asked them to run away and leave the area knowing that much damage had been done to them.” The anonymous witness said.

Our source said after the thieves ran away naked they did not return to their homes but hid themselves at the vacant plot owned by Olumba Olumba Obu  located opposite the stadium.

“They hid themselves there with blood still gushing from their bodies and this morning some people from Big Qua who were passing through the short cut along the vacant Olumba plot saw them and raised alarm and a mob  began to chase and beat them more.” He said.

He said they ran into the Oando Filling Station but were sent out by the attendants and the mob caught up with them and made them  to lay on the floor along Calabar Road opposite the stadium and it was from there the police came for them”.

Irene Ugbo, the Cross River Police Command spokeman, said she was too busy to speak to our reporter on phone and would call back but has not done so at the time of filing this report.
