Two suspected armed robbers were  set ablaze on Monday by an angry mob in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

It was gathered that one was set ablaze at ASAS bus stop, Molete, and the other in the Oke-Ado area of Ibadan.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Olugbemiga Fadeyi, who confirmed the incident to reporters in Ibadan, said one other suspected robber was rescued by the Amotekun team.

Fadeyi said police had launched an investigation into the matter to ascertain the immediate and remote cause of the action of the angry mob.

He said: “Notwithstanding, the act of jungle justice is condemned in strong terms as this has become a recurring decimal in the state.

“When allowed to continue unabated, it will degenerate into what all and sundry will not be able to curb thereafter and many innocent lives will be terminated unjustly.

“Consequent upon this, the Commissioner of Police, therefore, warns those that are taking laws into their hands should stop forthwith before the long hands of the laws caught up with them.”
