Jungle justice: Angry Mob Brutally Kill Armed Robber In Oyo [PICTURED]

An arm robber in Oyo, who specialized in carrying out his nefarious acts using motorcycles, got more than he bargained for when he was attacked by a mob and killed. 

The unidentified man is said to have completed a robbery on a petrol station in the Alakia area of Ibadan, the state capital, when he was chased down and accosted by the mob.
The robber was then stabbed in the stomach and his other gang members were beaten mercilessly until they were rescued by the police.
The Tribune reports said that, his gang member and the okada man he used were not spared either, as they were beaten black and blue before they were rescued by policemen from Monatan Division. Two locally-made pistols and two live cartridges were found on the unidentified deceased gang member.

The gang was said to have invaded Bambo petrol station at Alakia area of Ibadan on Thursday, March 20 armed with the two guns. The unidentified gang leader reportedly shot into the air which attracted the manager of the petrol station. Leaving his office to see what was happening, the man was confronted by the sight of two of his attendants held hostage.

The armed robbers also walked towards him and collected his money and handsets, leaving after an operation that did not last more than 10minutes.

Piqued by the effrontery of the young men, the manager reportedly summoned courage, picked a motorcycle and went after the armed robbers. On seeing that he was being pursued, the unnamed gang member reportedly shot into the air but this did not deter the people as they got closer to the bike that conveyed the armed robbers.

He was pulled off the bike and held down while others continued with the chase of others until they caught up with them. The leader of the gang was immediately dealt with as someone among the crowd was reported to have drawn a knife and slit his stomach, as the mob hailed when his intestines poured out. He was said to have writhed in pain while he held his intestines in his own hands, unable to talk, until he gave up the ghost.

The state’s police spokesperson, Olabis; Okuwobi-Ilobanafor, confirmed the incident, saying that the suspects had been transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) for further investigations. She added that investigations would prove the innocence or otherwise of the okada rider.
