Armed robbers meet waterloo after guns run out of bullets

Two suspected armed robbers were on Thursday set ablaze by an angry mob beside the Conoil Filling Station, along Awka-Enugu Road Onitsha, Anambra State.

Eyewitness said the suspects came on a motorcycle, robbed some Awada residents of their money and phones, among other items, and shot several times in the air to scare people before trying to escape.

The sources said luck ran out on the robbers when residents noticed that they had exhausted their bullets.

Police account of the incident said the mob chased the robbers and captured them at the MCC Junction, Onitsha, where they placed the motorcycle on them and set them on fire.

The Anambra State commissioner of police, CP Echeng Eworo, confirmed the incident but cautioned residents against mob action.

Eworo, who frowned on such acts, commended members of the public who always assisted the police in apprehending suspected criminals.

He said, “Information revealed that in the early hours of Thursday, the unidentified armed suspects, operating on a motorcycle, robbed some persons at Awada.

“An angry mob chased them when they discovered that the robbers had run out of bullets. They accosted the suspects on Oraifite Street by Ogbo Bread Junction and set them ablaze with their motorcycle.”
