Five suspected armed robbers were killed by some angry mob Tuesday morning, at Apo Mechanic Village in Abuja.
A witness, Ifeanyi Ebube, said the incident happened around 11 am when one of the suspects was identified to be among the armed robbery suspects who robbed traders and POS operators around Apo mechanic village on Monday evening.

He said one of the robbery victims immediately raised an alarm after one of the robbery gang members was identified, which he said attracted the attention of traders and some mobs who lynched two among the suspected robbers.
“And it was after two of the robbers were lynched, the traders and some residents again mobilised in their large numbers to the house of the robbers and killed the remaining three other gangs around Kabusa and the Waru area,” he said.
