‘One chance’ robbers escape lynching in Umuahia

A two-man robbery gang which allegedly specialized in robbing passengers of their belongings, have escaped being burnt alive by an angry mob in Umuahia, Abia State.

The incident happened beside popular Golden Guinea Breweries along Aba road in the Abia capital.

The robbers were alleged to be hypnotizing their victims or threatening them with sharp objects, before robbing them of their cash and mobile phones after which they hacked the phones to withdraw their money from banks.

However, their evil luck expired as an angry mob descended on them, beating them to pulp and destroying the tricycle they used.

DAILY POST gathered that a passenger, who was a former victim of their robbery, raised the alarm after identifying them on entering their tricycle again.

The alarm attracted a crowd which included some past victims of “One Chance”

Observing that the crowd was increasing, the suspected robbers allegedly confessed their crimes and started begging for mercy, according to a resident of Aba road, Moses Nnakwe.

But their plea for mercy did not earn them forgiveness as they were mercilessly beaten, with some people threatening to set them ablaze.

However, the intervention of some elders in the crowd saved the suspected robbers from being burnt alive.

Abia State Police Command was yet to speak on the incident as of the time of this report.
