Police

Two mobile police officers have been beaten to death by an angry mob who also injured two others over the death of a motorcyclist and his passenger at Ikpeshi community in Akoko-Edo Local Government Area (LGA) of Edo state.

The incident occurred after a vehicle with four police officers ran into a motorcycle, resulting in the death of the rider and his passenger.

It was gathered that the policemen were in a Hilux van as escort to a former member of the Edo State House of Assembly, Hon Emmanuel Agbaje, when they hit the Okada, killing the victims on the spot.

However, an angry mob invaded the Edo State Security Volunteer Network (vigilante) office where the policemen were detained and ended up beating two of them to death. 

Members of the vigilante group were able to rescue the other two who are currently receiving treatment.
