Residents force alleged thief to laugh hard and say “stealing is so sweet”

A hilarious video of the incident has been circulating online in which the alleged thief is seen sitting on the floor while surrounded by people reported to be Takoradi residents who claimed he has been on their raider for a long time.

The suspect was allegedly attempting to steal some electrical cables from a shop when he got nabbed.

According to a narrator who filmed the video, the residents took their pains to be on guard over the night to arrest the alleged thief in his 50s.

Amidst beatings, the man was instructed to laugh and say “stealing is so sweet”, and he hesitantly complied to avoid receiving further beatings.

Although laughter is meant to express merriment, it is obvious in the case of the alleged thief that he was expressing the opposite under duress.
