An irate mob set fire on two suspected armed robbers who disguised as sit-at-home order enforcers in Onitsha, Anambra State.
The alleged robbers were burnt to death at MCC Junction, beside Conoil Filling Station, along Enugu/Onitsha highway on Wednesday, January 19.
According to Nigerian Tribune, the suspects came on a motorcycle, allegedly robbed some residents in Awada of undisclosed amount of money, phones and other items and shot sporadically in the air to scare people before escaping.
However, they were given a hot chase and were nabbed after the MCC Junction.
It was gathered that the mob immediately placed the motorcycle on top of the suspected armed robbers and set them on fire.
