August 24, 2013 – Armed Robbery Suspect Burnt To Death In Onitsha Anambra State As Police Investigate Jungle Justice

Close to the location of a baby found dumped in Onitsha on Friday was the badly burnt body of a young man in his late 20s who had boarded a luxury bus going to Lagos with a view to robbing other passengers on the way but luck ran against him as he was searched and a locally made pistol found on him.

The incident according eyewitness accounts occurred at 9pm on Thursday when the suspect dressed in a black suit boarded the luxury bus with other passengers. But when the driver wanted to move, he asked that a search on passengers be conducted and it was during the search that a locally made pistol fell off from the suspect’s pocket. As a result, he was lynched and burnt by irate youths.

Confirming the incident, the Onitsha Police Area Commander, Mr. Benjamin Wordu said the policemen discovered the burnt body of the suspect at the Upper Iweka, adding that he was a victim of jungle justice. Wordu urged residents of the commercial city to go about their normal businesses on the ground that the situation has been brought under control and investigations were ongoing.
