The three armed robbery suspects caught and severely beaten by mob on Tuesday at Fadeyi area of Lagos State have died in police custody. The fourth suspect, Bayo Kadiri, had died before they were taken to the Onipanu Police Station.

The Nation gathered that the suspects – Ahmed Fatai, Rafiu Mogaji, Godwin Uzong and Bayo Kadiri died on Tuesday night at the Onipanu Police Station.

They were said to have died after bleeding for over four hours from bullet wounds and other injuries sustained as a result of the mob attack on them.

Our correspondent learnt that the four bodies have been deposited at the Ikorodu General Hospital morgue, while the case has been transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Sqaud (SARS), Ikeja.

The suspects, who were said to have earlier robbed a woman identified as Onchris around Ilupeju and dispossessed her of N400, 000 and telephone, proceeded to Jibowu where they attacked a Diamond Bank customer, Ms. Joy Oroh and snatched her handbag containing N200,000.

They reportedly shot Ms. Oroh on her thigh before collecting the money she had withdrawn to foot the hospital bill of a sibling admitted at the Infectious Disease Centre (IDH), Mainland Hospital, Yaba.

But unfortunately for the gang which also shot a motorcyclist who chased them, a mobile policeman on bank guard on Morocco Road reportedly opened fire on them, demobilising them.

It was gathered that while their rider escaped with gunshot wounds, the other four were not so lucky as bystanders caught up with them and had them severely beaten.

The suspects, who were bleeding were hit by bottles and other dangerous objects by the angry mob, who wanted to kill them.

A security source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told The Nation that the victims bled to death, adding that their corpses were taken to Ikorodu around 8:00pm on Tuesday.
