Another jungle justice at Igbokoda, headquarters of Ilaje Local Government Area of Ondo State, where two robbery suspects met their untimely demise, as they were buried alive by two siblings for allegedly stealing N130,000.
The accusing siblings, identified as Omoniyi Alaleran and Oluwaseun Enikuomehin alleged that the two suspects, Igbekele Orisabinole and Ogbaro Erinbo stole their mother’s money, the NATION reports.
Mrs. Ogunnuga, the siblings’ mother, reportedly lost N130,000 and accused Orisabunole and Erinbo of being behind the disappearance of her money. She subsequently reported the matter to her children, who tortured the duo to confess and bring out their mother’s missing money. Orisabunole and Erinho were said to have denied stealing the money but the brothers refused to accept their pleas of innocence. After torturing them without making a headway, the siblings reportedly led the alleged thieves inside a bush, dug a pit and pushed them inside and covered the pit up to their necks.
The case was reported to the police and the siblings have since been arrested and transferred to the Special Investigative Bureau at the police headquarters in Akure, the Ondo State capital for further investigations.
The Ondo State Police spokesman, Femi Joseph, confirmed that the incident occurred at Omonira Street, Igbokoda, on March 12, adding that investigations on the case are almost concluded, and the suspects will soon be charged to court.
