“Fed up with incessant robbery attacks on the streets of Oduobi crescent, Ikenegbu in Owerri, the state capital, residents of the area Friday took grave risk by challenging a gang of armed robbers who invaded the business environment in a broad day light.
“An eye witness account revealed that the men of the underworld had robbed the business crescent, enraged by the constant criminal acts in the area, the residents who were mostly youths gave the four man gang of suspected criminals a chase of their lives.
“The eyewitness who craved anonymity for security reason said “the robbers saw that the residents were not intimidated by their guns, they began to run. The people ran after them because they were determined to get them.”
“Three of them escaped, but people got one of them while he was trying to scale through the fence. We wanted to call the police but an angry mob took him away to where I don’t know.”
