Police Rescue 2 Men From Being Set Ablaze By Commercial Motorcyclists

Policemen from Karu Abattoir outpost in Abuja on Tuesday rescued two men, accused of stealing motorcycles, from being set ablaze by an angry mob at the Old Karu Road.
A source at the police outpost, who pleaded for anonymity, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the policemen got a distress call that motorcycle thieves had been caught.“On our arrival at the place, we saw people putting together disused tyres and petrol to burn the alleged thieves.
“We had to fire several shots into the air to disperse the mob, after which we brought them to the office.“Before our arrival, the mob had vented their anger on the two young men, with their blood splattered all over them.“They would have been killed but for our intervention,” he said.
