A suspected kidnapper has been lynched by an angry mob in Akinpelu, Oshodi area of Lagos State. The suspect according to reports was killed for allegedly attempting to kidnap three babies.

This incidence occurred despite repeated warning by the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni against jungle justice. Recall that over 30 suspects for jungle justice was arrested recently.

There was pandemonium at Brown Street, Oshodi, as the suspected kidnapper was clubbed to death following the alleged kidnap of three children who were returning from their holiday coaching.

According to eyewitnesses, the alleged kidnapper was caught with a big bag, popularly known as Ghana must go, which he was struggling with along Salami Street. This prompted suspicious residents to question him, and to their surprise, they discovered three children in the bag he carried.

The abducted children were said to have lost their voices due to suffocation as they barely struggled to stay alive until they were rescued.

The suspect  alleged to be a Further Mathematics teacher from one Odeogberin International Nursery and Primary School at Owoseni Street, Oshodi but when he was taken to the school, the headmaster said he was not a teacher and had never seen him before.

A resident, who simply identified herself as Omotoke, said area boys took the kidnapper around and asked for his identity but when no one recognized him, they stripped him of his clothes.

“When they opened his bag, two of the children appeared to have died while one was still breathing. At the sight of the lifeless bodies, the angry mob beat him until he died,” she said.
