Two Female Robbers Get Lynched In Aba

Two female members of a robbery gang that had been terrorizing Iheorji axis of Aba in Abia State  area were lynched to death last weekend. DailySun reports that the angry residents of the area killed the two girls, whose robbery gang had been giving them sleepless nights.
According to a resident, who would not want his name in print, for fear of attacks, no night passed without armed robbers operating in their area for at times, up to three hours unchallenged.
He recalled that in the early hours of Wednesday, last week, motorcycles as usual, invaded the area, broke into a building and shot sporadically, wounding a 15-year-old-boy in the  process. They were said to have robbed the occupants of the house and the neighbours of cash and other valuable items.
“The armed robbers operated for over three hours unchallenged and because of the gunshots we heard, we ran into the nearby bush where we stayed till morning and this has continued,” he said.
The following day, the robbers  struck again and attacked a building not far from that of the previous night’s operation and wounded a teacher on the leg and he has been hospitalised.
“For over three weeks, we have not been sleeping in our houses because the robbers now come on daily basis and nobody is challenging them. We, on our own arranged for private security guards who we pay monthly, but the robbers overpowered them because of their superior fire power.”
And on that fateful day, the two young women came in company with their male counterparts to rob as usual, but unknown to them, youths of the area and the private security guards had laid ambush for them.
 When the youths attacked them as they approached, the surprised male gang members escaped leaving the two girls behind.
And trust Aba people, the two ladies were lynched immediately.
