Igbo man killed in Abuja for Urinating near Mosque
A man who allegedly urinated near a mosque at Jiwa area close to Gwagwa, one of the shantytowns in Abuja Municipal Area Council in the federal capital territory, Abuja, was on Friday lynched by an
angry mob.

According to a  report by Breaking Times, trouble started when "a middle-age man was passing through one of the streets in the village, and then decided to urinate into a drainage close to a mosque" which some Muslim youths considered as ‘Haram’ and decided to attack the man.
A witness said that when the man started to urinate, one of the Muslim youths accosted him, picked up a stone and threw it at the victim, adding that when the victim finished urinating, he also picked the same stone and threw it back at his attacker.
“This elicited more attacks from the angry youths, who at this point came in full force and descended on the man. They beat him to pulp,” the witness added. 

He added that after the beating, the man was rushed to a private hospital at Gwagwa village, where he was pronounced dead by doctors. 
It was learnt that for the timely intervention of the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Gwagwa Police Station and some other prominent persons in the two communities, it would have degenerated to a religious uprising. 
The FCT Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Anjuguri Manza, did not respond to enquiries on the killing
