Angry mob sets three suspected robbers ablaze in Abuja


Some angry mob has on Monday set three men who allegedly robbed a lady in a car at Dutse Alhaji, a suburb of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

According to reports, the mob killed the suspected robbers with stones after which their bodies were set ablaze with disused tyres alongside their operational vehicle.

The suspected robbers who posed as passengers in the vehicle, were said to have dispossessed their victim of her belongings after which they reportedly pushed her out of the car.

An eyewitness said, “The one chance robbers, after taking their victim’s money, phone and other belongings, pushed her out of their vehicle, but some Okada riders saw them and gave them a hot chase.

“They caught up with the robbers under the Dutse Alhaji bridge. They burnt two of them inside their vehicle while the third one who attempted to escape into Dutse Alhaji market was also caught and stoned to death. His body was then set ablaze with old tyres and fuel.”

The police could not save the deceased as they were overwhelmed by the people who insisted on meting out jungle justice on them.

The bodies of the robbers have since been evacuated by the police.
