Angry Mobs Burn Suspected Kidnappers To Death

Three suspected kidnappers were beaten up and burnt to death by mobs in separate incidents in Oshobo, Osun State on Friday.

Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the command, Mrs. Folasade Odoro, told a Lagos based newspaper that another suspect was caught and mobbed at Alekuwodo area of the Oshogbo.

The Alekuwodo suspect, who was allegedly caught with three children, was rescued by the police before he was set ablaze.

"The suspect was rescued and brought to the police but he gave up the ghost when receiving treatment," the PPRO said.

Following the killings, the State Police Command has issued a warning to residents to desist from meting out jungle justice.

"The command is warning residents of the state against jungle justice. If anybody is arrested, such should be handed over to the police. Nobody has the right to kill any suspect; it is against the law,” Odoro added.

Meanwhile, the state governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola, in a statement issued by his media aide, Mr. Semiu Okanlawon, condemned kidnapping as well as jungle justice meted out to the suspects.
