A gang of "armed robbers" were almost set ablaze by an angry mob yesterday in Imo state. The robbers had been attacking and robbing individuals and businesses in Ogbaku - Ubomiri -Ifakala -Umunoha axis of Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo State and the robbery had become so frequent that people and businesses operated in fear daily. The communities were said to have formed vigilante groups to secure the communities.
Yesterday was the unlucky day for the robbers as the vigilantes disarmed them, beat them and were getting ready to set them on fire as African jungle justice goes before policemen intervened.
One of the robbers was however said to have died from his wounds before police intervention.
