A 61-year-old suspected gay, identified simply as Salisu, escaped death in Apapa area of Lagos State, when an angry mob descended on him.
The man was said to have offered a 13-year-old boy N500 near Anjorin market about 6pm on Sunday. He allegedly started to rub the boy’s private part when two men caught him.
The boy said he offered him N500 and begged him not to talk because he would like it. Some people came and pleaded on his behalf and he was allowed to go. People wanted to hand him over to the police but later withdrew as he was badly injured and had lost a lot of blood.
