”The timely intervention of Police from Ebute-Ero Division and Rapid Response Squad (RRS) rescued four persons from being killed by a mob,” the PPRO said.

He said that the four adults (including one grandmother) were severely beaten on Wednesday in Eko bridge.

“They were suspected of being kidnappers because they had with them in their vehicle twelve children (ranging from a seven-month-old baby to 12 years old).

“Police officers from Ebute-Ero Division and the RRS were on time to rescue the adults from lynching. Their vehicle was totally burnt down by the mob,” Hundeyin said.

He added that preliminary investigation showed that they were all coming from the beach where they allegedly went to do some sacrifices.

Hundeyin said that the adults also explained that the children were their children and grandchildren.

According to him, the case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigating Department (SCID) for further investigations.

He warned Lagos residents against jungle justice. (NAN)
