“At about 8am yesterday along hospital road, we were told a three man gang was caught while trying to steal an Okada. In the process, the owner raised an alarm which attracted some members of the public.
” In no time a mob descended on the suspects and beat them to a pulp. They sustained what I could described as third degree injuries.
“We tried to rush them to hospital but they died midway.”
