The Police have buried the three robbery suspects who were burnt to death by a mob at Dutsen Alhaji, a suburb of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
The three suspects were burnt to death on Monday.
Our Correspondent learnt that the Force took the decision to bury the charred corpses of the men because it would be hard to identify them, as they were burnt beyond recognition.
They were burnt alongside their operational car.
The suspects were lynched after they allegedly robbed and threw out a lady from their vehicle.
The FCT Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Mr. Ayuba Wobin, confirmed on Tuesday that the robbery suspects were interred on Monday.
Meanwhile, the FCT Minister, Muhammad Bello, has decried the killing of the suspected traffic robbers, describing it as “an act of lawlessness.”
A statement by the Special Assistant (Media) to the minister, Abubakar Sani, warned that any individual or group found taking the laws into their hands or resorting to self-help would be dealt with in accordance with the relevant laws.
It said, “No group or individual has the right to take anybody’s life the way these young men were burnt to death.
“I have directed the Police to carry out a thorough investigation and bring the perpetrators to book.”
Bello expressed satisfaction with the efforts of security agencies in curbing crime in the FCT.
“To a very large extent, we are happy with what the security agencies are doing to keep the territory safe and arrest all criminal elements particularly traffic robbers, kidnappers and other law-breakers, wherever they may be,” he stated.
