According to a Facebook user, Ikechuckwu Daniel, the suspects were set ablaze in Umuguma in the Owerri West Local Government Area of Imo State for allegedly stealing a brand new motorcycle from a commercial motorcyclist .

The incident, according to Daniel, occurred around the ever busy World Bank roundabout, when the two men said to be in their mid-20s, snatched a brand new motorcycle from a commercial motorcyclist.

It was gathered that two suspects were caught by other commercial motorcyclists after the victim raised an alarm and after beating them thoroughly, they were burnt alive before security men could arrive at the scene.

But when will Nigerians learn to allow the security officers do their jobs instead of taking the laws into their hands every time?
