The Ondo State Police Command has arrested two suspects for allegedly involving in lynching a suspected internet fraudster, Tope Olorunfemi, to death in Akure, the State capital.
The mob also set Tope’s car ablaze. The deceased was killed by a mob in the Ijoka area of the city due to reckless driving. Two persons died in the Monday incident while six others sustained injuries.
