A 56-year old man identified as Bernard Ikuenobe has been mobbed to death over an alleged false alarm that he duped a lady to the tune of N8,000.
Bernard, a driver, was said to be going to work when he was accosted by the lady identified as Joy Iyere at Owegie Street off Ekewan road.
The lady whose names were not given was said to have held him and raised an alarm that Bernard was a native doctor that duped her.
Wife of the deceased, Patience, said she used to see her husband in her dreams every night because he was yet to be buried three months after he was killed.
Patience narrated that the incident happened on January 2 and that she met her husband stone dead at a hospital where he was taken to by the police and the people that mobbed her.
She stated that all efforts to bring her husband killers to justice have failed as according to her, the police has released three suspects arrested.
According to her, “I see my husband everyday in my dream. They called my son to come and sign some papers for my husband to be buried but we suspected foul play.
Her twin sister, Kehinde, who witnessed the killing, said she pleaded with the mob to leaver her in-law alone but her pleas fell on deaf ears.
Kehinde stated that she was also beaten up and wounded while attempting to save the deceased.
According to her, “They were more than 15 persons that used sticks and planks to beta my in-law to death. By the time they took him to the hospital, h easy already dead.”
Counsel to the family, Ikuenobe Anthony, said they were waiting for legal advice from the DPP when the suspects’ lawyer secured bail for two of the suspect through the High Court.
Barr. Ikuenobe, a cousin to the deceased, said the family rejected money brought by the suspects.
Police spokesman, DSP Abiodun Osifo, said he was yet to get brief on the matter.
