The Police Command’s public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a statement on Thursday said the burglar was lynched to death after an alleged attempt to rob one Mrs Adeyemi Opeyemi.
“The burglar had allegedly gained entrance into the room of Opeyemi, of No 2, Asalu Bus Stop, off Abaranje Road, Ikotun in an attempt to rob her.
“But she raised alarm and the burglar escaped into the street, where some members of the community apprehended and beat him to death,’’ he explained.
The spokesman noted that the three community leaders have some questions to answer pertaining to the killing of the suspect.
“He has vowed to kick against such as it is becoming rampant and such is inimical to our collective efforts to improve on the Criminal Justice System of Lagos State.’’
