An angry mob in Ekete community in Udu local government area of Delta State on Saturday, January 2, 2018 set ablaze a member of a suspected human organ trafficking syndicate.
The victim who pretended to be mentally unstable, was on Saturday set ablaze after residents in the area discovered fresh human parts in her makeshift hut.
Eye-witnesses said they believed the lady was member of a syndicate who specializes in killing and selling human parts.
They said her evil act came to an end at about 3:35pm when some residents of the area who wanted to burn refuse they gathered near the suspected lunatic’s hut noticed the body parts.
One of the eyewitness who spoke to our correspondent under strict anonymity said resident who noticed the suspicious behave of the pretentious lunatic, took a bold step to keenly look into her hut and raised the alarm.
The woman who many described as beautiful was not spared by the mob who settled her case with jungle justice before police arrived the scene of incident.
As at the time of filing this report, the remains of the woman and that of a fresh dead body of a young lady discovered with her were still burning.
Some residents who spoke with our correspondent on grounds of anonymity said they had to take the law into their hands to act as a deterrent to others who may be in the same business with her.
“We have to take the laws into our hands because similar incidents like this which have been reported to the police did not yield any fruit. At the end of the day the suspects are always released after spending a few nights in the police cell. So this time around we decided not to allow this one go the same way,” they said.
