Two Suspected Car Robbers Escape Lynching In Abuja (Photo)

Two suspected car robbers have been mobbed along the Solomon Law Way in the Utako area of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. Punch correspondent learnt that the suspects, whose names had yet to be ascertained, were beaten with iron rods and stones, after they were caught trying to steal a car. The incident happened on Tuesday.

Eyewitnesses said the suspects, who came in a Volkswagen Golf taxi, attempted to steal a stationary car and when the plan failed, they tried to escape in their operational car. The mob, however, blocked their path.

A witness, identified only as Ibrahim, said, “The robbers knew they would be mobbed if caught and attempted to speed off in their car.

However, in their desperation, they ended up crashing into a protective concrete slab. They thereafter abandoned the car and took to their heels, but the crowd caught up with them near a vulcaniser’s shed.

“They bled profusely from the beating and stoning they were subjected to. Some of the hoodlums brought tyres and wanted to set them ablaze, but for the intervention of other bystanders.”

Punch correspondent learnt that policemen from the Utako division later arrived at the scene and took the suspects away.

The FCT Police spokesperson, Usen Perry, confirmed the arrest, saying nobody had yet to show up as a complainant.

He said, “The suspects are in custody. They were taken for treatment and are now back in custody. Till now, nobody has showed up at the station as a complainant. But the suspects are still with us. They were badly beaten.”
