Angry mob sets suspected robber ablaze in Delta

Angry mob set a suspected robber ablaze along Jakpa Road, Uvwie council area of Delta state.

It was gathered that the incident occurred on Thursday night around 10 pm by Small Market off the very busy route after the suspect alighted from a stolen tricycle.

According to The Nation, the deceased was suspected to be part of a four-man gang, which snatched a tricycle otherwise known as Keke Napep from an unidentified individual at gunpoint

The suspect, who took to his heels after sighting some vigilante members was later caught by another set of vigilantes who had been alerted of the incident.

Angry residents, who got wind of the situation, reportedly mobilized to the scene, got hold of the suspect and set him on fire.

Public Relations Officer of the State Police Command, DSP Bright Edafe, who confirmed the incident said that a member of the gang who fell off the moving tricycle was in police custody.

Edafe explained that men of the Warri ‘A’ Division received information that a Keke was snatched at Hausa Quarters in Warri South LGA and went after the gang.

“The other three escaped with the Keke. Messages were sent to all the local vigilantes who intercepted them somewhere in Ekpan. Two jumped down and escaped, while one was caught by the vigilante.

“But unfortunately before the police got there a mob had already overpowered the vigilante and set him ablaze. But while they were about burning the Keke our policemen got there.

“Though it was damaged, we were able to recover the Keke. It is the locally made gun they were using to rob with two cartridges and some jewelries that they had stolen that were recovered,” he said.
