Five men reportedly incinerated to death in Anambra
Five men were incinerated to death after they allegedly attempted to snatch a tricycle operator of his tricycle in Onitsha, Anambra State.
It is reported that the incident occurred at old Nkpor road, close to the headquarters of People’s Club, in the commercial city of Onitsha on Saturday, March 25, 2023.
According to an eyewitness, the suspects allegedly tried to steal a tricycle from the owner in broad daylight when they ran out of luck and were caught.
“Mob who gathered after the men were rounded up, refused the advice of some people to call in the police. They then proceeded to set the men ablaze. It was a very bad sight today, and everyone watched and supervised, while the men burnt to death,” he said.
In one of the graphic videos circulating online, one of the suspects could be heard screaming ‘Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,” while crying for help.
