A suspected kidnapper caught in Lapai Local Government Area of Niger State on Friday afternoon has been set ablaze by some residents after he allegedly kidnapped two children.

The suspect, whose identity is yet to be known, was carrying the children away to an unknown destination when he was accosted by some residents who asked him where he was taking the two children to.

Unable to give any credible answer, it was learnt that they descended on him and beat him to a coma.

Not satisfied, the mob gathered wood and placed it on the suspected kidnapper and a tyre while some others provided fuel which they poured on the body before setting him ablaze.

The spokesperson for the state police command, Abiodun Wasiu, when contacted, confirmed the incident.

He said when the police arrived at the scene, the mob had dispersed but were able to evacuate the burnt body to the hospital, adding that the police would arrest the culprits.
