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