Two Suspected Thieves Burnt To Death By Angry Mob In Bayelsa
Two suspected thieves were burnt to death by an angry mob in Bayelsa.
The two armed robbery suspects allegedly specialised in robbing Points of Sales (POS) business outlets in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital.
The men, who were in a Lexus SUV, reportedly stormed a POS-enabled cash centre at Green Villa in Biogbolo suburb of Yenagoa on Thursday, January 23.
They attempted to rob customers trying to deposit their money but the POS attendant raised alarm and the men were caught by passersby, beaten, butchered and burnt by the irate mob that gathered. Their get-away car was also burnt.
The police in the state have condemned the mob action leading to the deaths of the two suspects.
Commissioner of Police in the state, Uche Anozia, has ordered an investigation and said that those responsible for the act will be arrested and prosecuted.
VIDEO: Nigerian Man Falls To His Death From 12th Floor While Allegedly Running From Indonesian Immigration Officers
A Nigerian man has died after falling from the 12th floor of his apartment while allegedly attempting to evade immigration officers.
The man, known as Ogodor, from Uli, Anambra state, fell from the Gading Nias Apartment in Jakarta, Indonesia, on Thursday, January 23, 2020.
There are conflicting reports about how he died. Some Nigerians in Indonesia claim that while trying to run from the officers, Ogodor bu Ogodor attempted to cross over to his neighbour’s house through a narrow ledge but he slipped and fell. However, Ogodor’s Nigerian neighbours are demanding answers as they claim they heard nothing about an immigration raid in the area.
Friends of Ogodor – who appears to have been popular from the number of posts being shared to mourn him – have put together videos showing Ogodor at different points in his life, to honor him.
Below are videos of Ogodor’s body being evacuated after his death.
