This news get to our mail early this morning from our coresspondent in Ondo City.
There was a mild drama at the Chocolatecity Student Resident Area in the Adeyemi College Of Education (ACE) around 6am this morning when residents caught a robbery suspect. Our correspondent reported that the robber was pummeled by an angry mob of female students after he was apprehended with the help of male student.
The correspondent said that incidents of thefts were rampant during examination periods as most students abandon their resident to take time to read in classrooms at night.
Suspected thieves reportedly take advantage of the situation to rob students of valuables like phones and laptops.
“Come and see the way students beat him,” a student resident in the female hostel told our correspondent on Thursday morning.
“You mean male students came from their hostels to beat the thief?” our correspondent asked.
“Yes, the guys descended on him and taught him a big lesson,” the student who doesn’t want to be named replied.
I”m sure he is a cultist.
They also said the suspected thief has been coming to the area since three years now.
But eyewitnesses said he was beaten and stoned to pulp before police came to rescue him.
