A young man in his 20s has been reportedly set ablaze by angry mobs at Afiesere community, Ughelli North Local Government Area, Delta State for allegedly snatching a newly purchased motorcycle from its owner.
The deceased unidentified had forcefully dispossessed the owner of the motorcycle around the Iwhrekpokpor roundabout area of the Ughelli metropolis and was making away with it when the owner raised an alarm.
A source said other commercial motorcyclists gave the deceased a hot chase and caught up with him around the secondary school in the Afiesere community.
“The alarm raised attracted a mammoth crowd, that caught up with the suspected thief and after beating him to stupor wore him a tire, poured petrol on him and set him ablaze.”
Contacted Police Public Relation Officer of the state command Mr. Bright Edafe confirmed the incident, saying “because of how it happened, we did not get details.
“The victim whose motorcycle was allegedly stolen has not shown up, but they said that the armed robber stabbed him. He has has not come to report and nobody has come to say anything; the motorcycle is already in our custody”.
