Students of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Akure (LAUTECH) have lynched a man suspected to be an armed robber and rapist following high incidence of crime.
The students have in recent past been victims of theft, burglary, assault and rape.
It was then to them a day of justice and revenge when on Saturday, September 6, they caught one of the perpetrators of the crimes in the act.
The students initially did not assault the suspect, simply identified as Segun, opting to alert the Students Union leadership, Tribune reports.
It was decided that the suspect be taken to the police in the Union's bus.
Unfortunately, they had an accident on their way to the police station.
The Speaker of the Students Representative Council, Olalekan Salami and 14 other students sustained severe injuries.
Student Pulse gathered that things took a sour turn when the students discovered that the criminal they were escorting mysteriously had no injuries.
Suspecting foul play and some sort of voodoo manipulations, they stripped him naked and beat him up.
It took the intervention of the top officials of the university to convince the students to release the suspect to the police.
After much drama, the criminal was finally handed over to the police.
The Area Commander and the District Police Officer assured the students of maximum security for the school and the town forthwith.
