The suspect before her was set ablaze

Two more armed robbery suspects were given the jungle treatment as they were burnt to death by an angry mob in Nkpor, Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State, barely two weeks after two suspects were also set ablaze after they robbed an Hausa trader at the New Tyres Market.
The incident that led to the recent jungle justice came when the robbers armed with pistols, trailed a woman on a commercial motorcycle with money in a 'Ghana-must-go' bag that she was taking to the bank.
The suspects allegedly snatched the money from the woman believed to be the cashier of a local bank branch in the town.
After snatching the money, the shot sporadically into the air and in a bid to zoom off, the had an accident with their own motorcycle and the woman and other passer-by who saw the incident raised alarm, alerting a passing police patrol team who went after the hoodlums.
Eyewitnesses report that on sighting the police, the suspects fired shots at the them and the police replied but the bullets did not pierce their bodies but they were overpowered by the crowd which dispatched the jungle treatment on them, burning them to ashes.
Jungle Justice

An angry mob, tired of the incessant robbery attacks they have been experiencing in the city of Onitsha, Anambra State, resorted to jungle justice when they nabbed two suspected armed robbery suspects after they snatched some motorcycles, and burnt them to ashes before the police could come to their rescue.
According to reports, the hoodlums were said to be terrorising residents of Onitsha and other neighbouring communities till they met their waterloo when they were caught and set ablaze after they were terrible beaten.
It was gathered that the criminals had robbed an Hausa trader who had just come into the town to transact his business, when they snatched a bag containing a huge amount of money. The unfortunate robbers were apprehended when they wanted to escape on their operational motorcycle after shooting the man in broad daylight.
According to an eyewitness, the robbers met their match when they shot at the man but the bullet did not penetrate his body.
"The robbers accosted the Hausa trader along the Onitsha/Enugu expressway, close to the market, and ordered him to hand over the money he was carrying in a bag to them.
As the man resisted the order, they shot at him three consecutive times but the bullets did not penetrate his body.
Seeing that the bullet did not penetrate, they sensed danger and were about to run away when the trader brought out his dagger and stabbed one of them on the chest.
Luck, however, ran out of them as an on-coming vehicle hit their bike and they both fell off.
Those who were watching the incident immediately mobilized themselves, turned to a mob, arrested the two robbers and set them ablaze."
