Sequel to the setting ablaze of a suspected motorcycle thief in Makurdi on Tuesday night, two young men have also lost their lives after an angry mob lynched them in Warri.
According to sketchy reports gathered, the young men were apprehended for robbery on Wednesday at the refinery junction before they were set ablaze.
There have been reported cases of mob action across Edo State. Even the police have been accused severally of killing suspected criminals without passing them through the judicial process.
Investigations by OduNews.com showed that one of the major reasons for such act is lack of confidence in the security and justice system.
Many believe that some of the victims are usually hardened criminals or those found to have been involved in very heinous crimes particularly as it pertains to taking of a life. There is also the belief that some of these criminals always find their way back into the society and some buy their freedom.
