An angry mob on Monday burnt two suspected traffic robbers alive at First Rainbow, on the Apapa-Mile 2 Road, Lagos State.
Sources say the suspects, armed with different weapons, robbed commuters of their valuable, especially those going to work early in the morning.
They also attacked people returning from work late in the night and during gridlock.
@AustynZOGS on twitter said two of the suspects were on Sunday reportedly nabbed during an operation. Angry mob beat them to a pulp before setting them ablaze.
He wrote, “This morning, some suspected bike snatchers/traffic robbers were caught & lynched by irate Okada riders at First Rainbow, along Apapa/Mile 2 Road. The Okada riders said the lynched suspects are some of the persons involved in the incessant traffic robbery in the area.”
The Lagos state police command has yet to comment on the matter.
