Suspected robber almost beaten to death in Lagos


But for God’s intervention, a suspected robber would have been lynched to death in Mushin area of Lagos.

It was a bad day in the office for a suspected armed robber who was unfortunate to be caught while members of his gang escaped in a operation that went awry at Hanson Close, Olateju Road in Mushin Local Government Area of Lagos State.

The hapless thief whose reportedly stabbed a man while dispossessing him of his possessions, was set upon by residents of the area who vented their anger on him and he was tied up, beaten blue and black, with blood gushing out of almost every part of his body.

God must have wanted to give him a second chance because while the angry mob went in search of tyres and fuel to set him ablaze, a passing Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) patrol team went to his rescue and he was taken to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) where he is undergoing treatment.
