Mafia hacks alleged thief in Delta
Dele Ogunyemi, Warric
An alleged notorious cell phone thief, identified simply as Lucky, has been hacked by an angry mob in the Iyara community in Warri, Delta State’s Warri-South Local Government Area.
PUNCH Metro discovered that the cell phone thief, who was identified as a member of a gang of mobsters that specialized in expropriating victims of valuables, was caught in action at the popular Akara Junction instead when he assaulted a young girl.
Sources said Lucky, in his desperation to forcibly dispose of the young girl’s handset, put the girl in one of her arms separately, but the girl allegedly refused to let go of her handset despite the injuries she sustained from the attack.
As the fighting continued, it was found that the girl raised the alarm and called for help and some male residents from the area came to her aid. Lucky was overpowered and stabbed severally.
However, Lucky reportedly managed to escape with multiple injuries and ran to the nearby Iyara roundabout along Cemetery Road, where he later gave up the ghost due to blood loss.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) for Delta State Command, DSP Bright Edafe, confirmed the incident.
