A yet-to-be-identified man has been beaten to a pulp by residents of Ore community in the Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State.
PUNCH Metro gathered that the victim allegedly vandalised the Automated Teller Machines of some banks in the commercial town on Monday.
The action raised suspicion that he was mentally ill.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, said the victim destroyed four ATMs, leading to a mob attack on him.
She said, “Information has it that he destroyed four machines, hence the beating, but he did not die.”
