A young man simply identified as Ifeanyi from Umuneke in Enugu, reportedly escaped being lynched by angry mobs after he was caught with 58 female pants at a student area in Mgbakwu.
The young man confessed to stealing more than the said quantity before he was caught.
It was reported that Ifeanyi broke into the house around 2:00 am and was packing up his stash of stolen underwear, when a lady raised an alarm. The lady was said to have come out to pee when she saw him. When questioned, he revealed that he sells the pants to one Emeka Ofor for N500. After being beaten mercilessly, the young man later fled after begging the mobs.
