A joint police task force on Tuesday was given a hot chase by aggrieved persons after an accident in Osogbo, the Osun state capital, according to eyewitnesses.
The accident involved three suspected internet fraudsters, who were being chased by the police unit.
The stick-wielding mob, who thronged some major streets around 6:30 pm, dumped the corpse of one of the victims at Government House gate, set born-fire along Oke-Fia road, and assaulted policemen on sight before they were dispatched by arm wielding policemen.
It was gathered that JTF chased four young men, suspected to be internet fraudsters after refusing to stop after they were flagged along Osogbo East-West bypass around 5:20 pm.
The suspected ‘Yahoo boys’, according to findings were at the Osun shopping mall to buy things before they were chased by the JTF through the Oba Adesoji Aderemi East-West bypass.
