Abuja - Sickening footage has emerged of a man being set alight after an angry mob accuses him of being a thief.
According to the UK Mirror, the man, identified as Josue Fuentes Bernal, was brutally beaten before he is covered in a clear liquid and set alight.
Bernal lays injured as men surround him, shouting at him. As he attempts to get up, his white shirt can be seen covered in blood.
A moment later Bernal is covered in a clear, flammable liquid while another man sets him alight.
As the man screams in agony, members of the crowd try half-heartedly to put out the flames with a coat and water.
Bernal has since been taken to a nearby hospital in Caracas, Venezuela and treated for burns on 70 percent of his body.
