Mob Lynches Robbery Suspects In Edo
Barely 24 hours after Governor Godwin Obaseki appealed to the police in Edo State to return to the roads, a mob has set ablaze two suspected armed robbers.
There have been increased cases of robbery in the state since policemen abandoned the streets over the burning of 10 police stations and injury to officers in the wake of violence that trailed the #EndSARS protest.
The two suspected robbers were apprehended near Okah Market by Sokponba Road, where they were beaten with clubs and set ablaze by youths from the area.
An eyewitness on Tuesday said the suspects came early in the morning, robbing market women and commuters going to their places of work.
He said, “There have been regular cases of a robbery around Sokponba Road due to the fact that the three police stations along the road, namely St. Saviour, Ugbegun and Idogbo, have been burnt. There is no single police post or any other security agency here.”
In a related development, a suspected armed robber was almost mobbed when he went into a new generation bank along Sapele Road and took two bales of N200,000.
He was reportedly sighted by a customer, who raised the alarm, and he was apprehended.
Two knives were allegedly recovered from the suspect.
