A suspected armed robber has been beaten to death by an angry mob in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa state capital.
According to reports, a three-man gang allegedly attacked a Point of Sale operator along Erepa Road on Wednesday May 26, and made away with an undisclosed sum of money.
An eyewitness also said the suspected robbers were trying to escape with the stolen money but ran out of luck when they had an accident with the tricycle used for the operation.
After the accident which occured near the Isaac Boro Express Way axis at Custom road, Biogbolo, the said robbers fired gunshots to scare away the mob, who, however, overpowered them and burnt down the Keke. One of the robbers managed to escape while the mob beat one to death before the police arrived the scene and rescued the third one.
