Mob Lynches Bayelsa Man Over Bread, Three Arrested


The police in Bayelsa State have arrested three suspects in connection with the killing of an alleged bread thief, Ebimotimi Freeborn, 32.

Spokesman for the Bayelsa State Police Command, Asinim Butswat, said yesterday that the arrested suspects were Preye Mathew, 50, Theophilus Tiro, 28, and Famous Precious, 22.

He said the suspects were part of the unruly crowd that mobbed Freeborn to death.

Butswat said the suspects were arrested around 5pm on July 9, at Tombia- Amassoma road after a mob lynched the victim to death for allegedly stealing bread.

“The command condemns the action of the mob and warns members of the public to desist from taking the laws into their hands.”

 The spokesman, a Superintendent of Police, said the suspects were undergoing interrogation and would be charged to court at the conclusion of investigation.
