The POS operator reportedly raised the alarm as the alleged robbers pulled out guns demanding money.

The alarm attracted the mob who chased after the fleeing men and apprehended them.

The country director of the Global Society for Anti-Corruption, G-SAC, Mrs Amaka Nweke condemned the jungle Justice.

Mrs Nweke however condemned the attacks on POS operators but said people should not take laws into their hands but hand over such matters to law enforcement agencies.

“I condemn what the robbers do to the POS operators but at the same time, I condemn mob action.  They should have handed them over to the police instead of taking laws into their hands,” she said.

However, a resident who would not want his name to be mentioned said the robbers deserved what they got.

“I like the way they were set ablaze alive so that it will serve as a deterrent to others.  If you have been a victim of these bad boys, you will even want a worse thing to happen to them.  I do not pity them.  Let them burn in hell for all I care.”
