Two men suspected to be motorcycle thieves were reportedly burnt to death at Umuguma, Owerri West Local Government Area of Imo State.
The deceased suspects allegedly snatched a brand new motorcycle from a commercial rider.
According to a resident of the area, Ikechukwu Daniel, the incident occurred around World Bank roundabout in the area, where the dead suspects perceived to be in their mid-twenties were caught by other commercial motorcyclists. The owner of the vehicle had raised an alarm after he was robbed of his bike.
The mob reportedly battered the suspects to a pulp before setting them ablaze. The security operatives in the area were said to have arrived at the scene afterwards.
