One chance robber burnt to death in Abuja

One chance robber burnt to death over alleged abduction of a woman and her child at the Wuse 2 area in Abuja.

It was gathered that Abuja residents pounced on the robbery gang and set one of the suspects ablaze.

The FCT Police Command spokesman, Mariam Yusuf, in a statement on Tuesday said a preliminary investigation revealed it was a case of “one chance robbery”.

The suspects, she noted, attempted to defraud their victim in a painted taxi with reg no. KUJ 959 AQ.

Police operatives from Wuse Division moved to the scene upon receipt of the information but could only rescue other suspects. He is receiving medical attention for his injuries.

“The Commissioner of Police CP Bala Ciroma has ordered a discreet investigation into the incident and appealed to members of the public to shun jungle justice”, Yusuf added.
