Two alleged male kidnappers were narrowly lynched by a mob after an alleged failed kidnapping on Friday, September 19, 2014 in Calabar, Cross River State.
This took place in the evening precisely between the hours of 3:30 and 4:30pm along the Mary Sleysor Avenue very close to the university’s Main Gate. The student reportedly raised an alarm which attracted an angry mob which surrounded the suspects and gave them the beatings of their lives.
One of themenwas beaten to close death, while the other one escaped the outrage of the mobs as he ran into the University of Calabar Main Gate’s Security Post.
The university’s surveillance unit immediately alerted the Joint Military Task Force/Police in Calabar Municipal Council who quickly arrived the scene of the violence and took the suspects away.
A white Audi car with registration number GEP-167-AAA (Cross River), which is said to be the vehicle the suspects used in the foiled kidnap was vandalised by the mob. The car was pulled to a nearby police station by some policemen.
