Angry residents set two suspected armed robbers ablaze in Ibadan [PHOTOS]

Two people suspected to be armed robbers have been set ablaze in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

The suspects were set ablaze by some angry residents around 10.pm on Wednesday.

A motorcycle which belonged to the suspects was also set ablaze by the residents.

The incident occurred few meters away from Sango Police barracks, along the Sango-Eleyele Road.

The actual offence allegedly committed by the suspects has not been revealed as of the time of filing this report on Thursday.

The scene of the incident on Thursday observed that the remains of the suspects are still at the road leading to Eleyele from Sango.

Some of those who spoke on the condition of anonymity explained that some residents raised an alarm which attracted people who were still awake.

They said the angry residents swung into action by embarking on jungle justice.

But, all efforts made  to get a reaction from the Public Relations Officer of the State Police Command, Adewale Osifeso, proved abortive.

Calls put through his mobile phone were not successful while a message sent to Mr. Osifeso has not been replied as of the time of filing this report on Thursday.
