According to a news that was posted by Punch Newspaper this morning, it was made known that on Sunday, some students of the Ekiti State University, whose hostel is located at Iworoko area of the state, caught one of the armed robbers that came to rob them and descended on him before police operatives who were alerted about the robbery got to the scene.
In the information that was given,it was made known that the armed robber, whose name was given as Sunday Oluwasola, was unlucky to escape after they finished robbing the students hostel and his others fled the scene.
When the angry Students caught up with him around 4am in the morning, they beat the suspect to stupor and when police operatives got to the scene, they were able to rescue him from the students and took him to hospital for treatment and proper legal action.
Unfortunately, the caught suspect gave up the ghost in the hospital he was taken to by police yesterday morning, due to the injury he sustained from the beatings.
Why He Shouldn’t Have Been Beaten…
It was made known that the deceased was not the only one that came to rob the students’ hostel, as he came along with his gang but, they were able to escape. During the robbery operation, information given made it known that the escaped suspects fled with the students mobile phones, laptops and other valuables and that after the suspect was apprehended, he gave the names of his accomplices as Tochuwku, Michael and Tomiwa, but, he was not given the chance to share more details of how the suspects can as well be arrested.
If the students have allowed police to handle the case by handing over the suspect in good health for proper investigation, their laptops and other valuables that the other fleeing suspects escaped with, might have been recovered, as the deceased will tell police about how they can arrest his accomplices but, he was unable to, due to the punishment he received from them.
