Tragic! Commercial Motorcyclist Reportedly Burnt to Death over Alleged Robbery



Mob Sets Commercial Motorcyclist AblazeAn irate mob on Tuesday evening, burnt a commercial motorcyclist accused of robbery to death at Finger bus stop along the Lagos-Badagry Expressway, PUNCH reports.

The deceased and another man on the motorcycle were alleged to have robbed some pedestrians in the area, and were being chased by police officers on patrol.

The officers reportedly shot the man behind and he fell off and was arrested.

According to an eyewitness, “The two wanted to escape on the motorcycle after dispossessing some pedestrians of their belongings. They were armed with guns. When the policemen intercepted them, the motorcyclist did not stop. But a mob waylaid him, beat him to stupor and set him on fire.”

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said she is yet to verify the incident.


Citizens must understand that taking laws into their hands is also a crime. Jungle Justice has to stop.

    But you f**king ignorant Nigerians will never touch a hair on your thieving politicians stealing your money in droves. Rather you will sing their praises like how they are praising Patience Jonathan and about to throw a welcoming party for James Ibori. Y’all deserve the kinda leaders you get. F**KING IGNORANT NIGERIANS

    Alleged o. Like it can be anyone.
    What if someone came out to say “it was me, not him”?
    Will they resurrect the one they murdered and kill the real robber?
    This is murder!
    They should just have turned him over to the police.
    Is Nigeria still like this? In 2016?
