It was a heartbreaking moment for the family of Tope Olorunfemi as angry mob on Monday lynched their son in their presence in Akure.
The deceased suspected to be an internet fraudster popularly called”yahoo boy” was alleged to have killed about three persons and injured several others in an accident that occurred along Ijoka road, Akure.
The Hope earlier reported that the deceased killed a couple, motorcyclists and destroyed many vehicles.
Reacting to the incident, Ondo State Police spokesperson, Funmi Odunlami said the killing of the boy by mob was a jungle justice.
“No one can confirm if the young man in question was an internet fraudster, there was an accident that led to the death of a motorcyclist.
Rather than rendering help, some resolved to jungle justice by killing the young man, Olorunfemi Tope who drove the vehicle and set his car ablaze.
“But for the quick intervention of the police, his parents too would have been killed. Two people were confirmed dead, while six others involved and injured in the accident are currently in the hospital.
“The parent of the driver (deceased) came to the scene where the boy was lynched to death) but not in the vehicle with their son,” Odunlami said.
