Two suspected armed robbers were burnt to death by an angry mob after allegedly attempting to rob a Point of Sale (POS) business centre along the Green Villa Road, in Biogbolo axis of Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.
The suspected robbers were said to have stormed the centre on Thursday evening in a Lexus Jeep as clients waited to deposit money but met their waterloo after a cry for help by the POS attendant.
They were burnt to death along with their Lexus SUV.
While condemning the mob action on the two suspects, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Uche Anozia, ordered investigation into the incident and vowed to arrest and prosecute those responsible for the act.
