Viral video of a thief dancing Azonto as area people look on in amusement pops up online


Thieves are one of the most annoying and irritating people society is forced to live with. Their actions leave pain and sorrows in the hearts of their victims. They have a menace to society since from Adam. In recent times, some thieves have become much wicked and heartless. They inflict wounds on their victims and some even go to the extent of killing their victims. Because of this, many people also resorted to lynching and killing them whenever they are caught. Since they don't believe in the justice system, they prefer to take matters in their own hands by beating, lynching, and sometimes burning them alive.

This act of mob justice or injustice, depending on how you choose to see it, have been condemned by several people and for that reason some Ghanaians have resorted to a more ingenious way of punishing their culprits. One of them is making the culprits do communal labour by making them clean their gutters. Another is what seem to be trending lately. That is, forcing the thief to dance whiles a song is being played all to the amusement of the public.

A video sighted on PulseGhana Twitter page today shows a thief being made to dance azonto in the presence of his captors whiles they look on with excitement. This form of punishment seems a but more subtle than the instant justice. At least the on lookers get to enjoy themselves watching the thief dance before the Police arrive at the scene of the theft.
