Share This

A yet-to-be-identified man has been b*rnt to death for allegedly snatching a motorcycle in the Ajata Kurudu area of Abuja.

The owner of the motorcycle was said to have raised the alarm as residents gave him a hot chase.

The mob, after catching up with him, set him abl*ze in a canal in the area.

According to PUNCH, an eyewitness, who gave his name as Musa, said, “A young man was caught stealing a motorcycle and was b*rnt alive in Ajata Kurudu.

“The owner of the bike cried out for help after he was robbed and some residents went after the suspect. He was caught and beaten to a stupor. They poured petrol on him and set him on fire.”

The Federal Capital Territory Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Josephine Adeh, said investigation was ongoing into the incident.

She said, “The FCT Police Command frowns on crime and criminality, but self-help in obtaining justice popularly called jungle justice is wrong. It is a crime. We strongly advise people to allow the police to do their job and shun this ugly practice.”
