Two men have been burnt to death by an irate mob for reportedly stealing a handset in the Mararaba area of Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city.
One of the suspects, according to a report by Daily Trust, snatched the handset from an unidentified man along the Abacha Road.
As he took to his heels, the residents around the area chased him. He suddenly jumped on a waiting motorcycle in an attempt to escape.
This never happened. He was c@ught with the motorcycle rider before they could escape.
They were immediately set ablaze. The police only arrived the scene to convey their charred bodies.
Some witnesses however claimed that the motorcycle rider may not have been an accomplice but one who was waiting to pick passengers while others think he was part of the deal.
His younger brother who refused to mention his name reportedly said the commercial motorcyclist was a victim of circumstance as he had never engaged in any criminal act before.
