Two Suspected Car Thieves Mercilessly Beaten By Angry Mobs In Abuja(Photo)

Two young men were attacked by angry mobs yesterday in Abuja.

They were suspected to have attempted to steal a car on the Solomon
Lar Way, Utako, as they were tortured with iron rods,stones while
others hurled missiles at


Some people in the crowd at

the busy mall where the

failed car theft was said to

have occurred, chased the

suspects as they tried to

escape in their getaway vehicle, an Abuja painted

Volkswagen Golf taxi cab,

with no number plates.

The suspects, obviously

aware of the consequences

should they be caught, drove

off rather desperately but

ended up crashing into a

protective concrete slab. They abandoned the car and

took to their heels but the

crowd caught up with them,

near a vulcaniser's shed, and

in less than 10 minutes, they

were bleeding profusely from the beating and stoning they

were subjected to. With tires not far away,

shouts of: "bring matches,"

"bring petrol," "yes, burn

them, "beat them," filled the

air and, but for the

intervention of a good Samaritan, they would have

been burnt alive. The police arrived in time and whisked them away.
