But for the arrival of the police, four suspected armed robbery suspects would have been beaten to death in Lagos.
It was a bad day in the office for four suspected armed robbery suspects in Lagos after they were caught while trying to rob a woman of the sum of N200,000 as she was coming out of a bank
According to an eyewitness who recorded the jungle justice being meted out on the suspects, when the robbers attacked the woman at the ever busy Fadeyi Bus Stop, the woman raised an alarm and the robbers reportedly shot into the air to scare away the crowd that was gathering so as to make way for their escape but ran out of bullets and the crowd moved in on them and gave them the beating of their lives with all manner of weapons including iron rods, planks, machetes and knives.
They were hell bent on killing the suspects before the police arrived and whisked them away.
