A suspect robber who killed a motorcyclist while trying to steal his bike, has met his end at the hands of angry youths in Ugep community, Cross River State.
According to reports, the thief while trying to steal the bike from its owner, set the rider ablaze. He first threatened the young man to release the bike keys to him, but the owner refused and fought back.
The thief fought the young man harder and allegedly emptied the small gallon of fuel he was with on the guy and set him ablaze. He took off with the bike afterward.
The victim was found minutes after by sympathizers who took him to the hospital. The thief was later arrested by the police.
Unfortunately, the young bike man who was set ablaze passed away yesterday morning. So, angry youths went down to the police station, brought out the thief and burnt him by the roadside in front of the station as can be seen in a video posted online.
