Four robbery suspects were beaten by a mob in Jibowu area of Lagos on Tuesday. The robbers allegedly fleeced customers of a particular bank in the area of their money and had attempted to rob another of N200,000 she had just withdrawn from a different bank nearby, when they were caught. The victim of the second attack raised an alarm, which attracted passers-by, leading to their arrest. Before their arrest, they were said to have shot into the air to scare people away. Defiant, the passers-by chased them having realised the robbers had exhausted the bullets in their hand gun.
The Police spokesman in Lagos Command, Dolapo Badmus, identified the robbers as Godwin Uzong, Ahmed Fatai, Rafiu Magaji and Bayo Kadiri.
