The suspect, however, met his untimely death after he was sighted at a bus stop by angry mob. According to eye witness, the irate mob hit him with hard objects before setting him ablaze.
Five suspects had been killed in the last two months in Warri and its environs through jungle justice. Meanwhile, seven persons among the angry mob who lynched the suspect had been apprehended by the police.
