“A local reporter William Jalulah who spoke to host of Morning Starr on Starr 103.5FM Thursday stated that Madam Yednboka Keena was taken to the Pelungu Chief but the Chief allegedly told her accusers that she could not handle the matter since there wasn’t enough evidence to handle the matter,” reports StarrFmOnline.
“The Pelungu was then handed over to the Tindongo Chief but before the Chief could sit on the matter a mob whisked the old lady and meted instant justice to her by stoning her to death,” the website add.
