Phone snatchers escape lynching

By Victor Igwe

Suspected cell phone snatchers on the prowl at Ekwema Crescent, Ikenegbu Layout, Owerri, Imo State, escaped lynching when they attempted to trick their victim and collect his phone.

According to eyewitnesses, the suspects had approached a young man, asking him to afford them some airtime in his phone to inform the police of the activities of cultists in the area.

Not suspecting any foul play, the young man obliged them, thinking they were law-abiding citizens.
