A middle aged man said to be in his late 20s was this afternoon beaten to stupor by angry mob.
The suspect was alleged to have stolen a Chinjeng at the ever busy Sango sunday sunday market.
According to an eyewitness, who simply identified himself as Muideen said " I came here to buy Ram, suddenly I saw people shouting thief thief running towards my direction, I saw a man who should be in his late 20s riding away on a chinjeg machine popularly.
He was riding ferociously towards Basin from Sango, owing to the hot chase, he lost control & fell down from the Okada.
He was however rescued by men of the Mobile Police force who prevented him from being lynched.
At the time of filing this report 1 hour after he was rescued by the police, he's yet to be taken to the hospital, rather he was left on the road side to the chagrin of passersby.
The most annoying part is police officers leaving him seated on the street for more than 1 hour, on the guise that his blood will stain van & they have no money for car wash.
They refused to evacuate him until someone contacted the DPO, who scolded them profusely before they eventually evacuated him.
