A suspected armed robber named Emmanuel who has been terrorising the residents of Ayede-Ogbese in Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State has been mobbed to death.

It was gathered that the suspect who had been convicted earlier had been on the watch list of residents of the town after he was released, returned and continued his nefarious activities.

However, the suspect met his waterloo on Sunday when he was trying to escape with four motorcycles he had snatched from their owners but the truck being used to convey them broke down.

He was caught and the residents mobbed him, beating him up mercilessly.

The spokesperson of Ondo State Police Command, DSP Tee-Leo Ikoro confirmed the incident on Monday via a telephone conversation, noting that the suspect had been badly injured before the police arrived at the scene.
