A young man escaped been lynched by angry Mob in Ado Ekiti after he was mistaken for a fake lunatic and kidnapper.

The young man was sighted by some people inside a canal along Ajilosun area around Fayose Market, Ado-Ekiti where he had gone to change his cloth.

This strange action attracted the attention of irate youths who assumed he was a kidnapper using the canal as a hide out.

However the timely interventions of his family members save him from attack by the youths.

The suspect was taken to the palace of the Ewi of Ado-Ekiti where he was confirmed to be a native of the town suffering from mental disorder.

The man has been handed over to his family but during a chat with roundoffnews he said the canal was a very comfortable abode for him adding that he would look for another location that suits him.
