Residents Rescue Serial Thief From Being Burnt Alive In Lagos (Photos)

A thief who was caught robbing a house on Karaa Street, Ajao Estate, Lagos, luckily escaped death after street security men attempted to burn him alive.

 The suspect, identified simply as Victor, scaled a fence into the compound, when he thought all the occupants of the house had gone to work. Fortunately, he was spotted by a neighbour, who then raised an alarm.

Victor confessed that it was his third attack on the house. Security men on the street put a tyre on him and were about to douse him with petrol before setting him alight when residents of the area intervened to save his life.

An eye witness said: “He told us that before he went to jail, he had robbed the same compound two times. When he got out of jail, he came back again to rob the compound,” he said. The residents later handed the suspect over to the Ajao Estate Police Command, where he is currently still being detained.
