An angry mob on Thursday set ablaze two suspected female kidnappers in Iwo, Osun State.
It was gathered that they were three suspects, one male and two females trying to kidnap a child but the women were apprehended while the man escaped.
The mob beat a lady to death while smashing the other with a plank before they were set on fire.
It was also gathered that the suspects were taken to the palace of the traditional ruler.
A resident of Iwo, who preferred anonymity said; “when the two women were apprehended by the people, they were taken to the palace but the traditional ruler told the people that brought the suspects to take them away.”
Ibrahim Ali, the Palace Spokesman said, “Oluwo was not at the palace when the incident happened and that the crowd was expected to take the suspects to the police station, not the palace.”
The State Commissioner of Police, CP Adie Undie, said the angry mob did not allow the policemen in the town to move near the scene.
He said, ”The two women were beaten to coma and set ablaze.”
The people in the area were still combing houses to fish out the third suspect.
