A mob set a man ablaze on Tuesday, at Urua Ekpa Junction, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State for allegedly stealing a motorcycle.

An elderly man who claimed ownership of the motorcycle, said he was shocked when he watched the deceased unlocking his vehicle with the aid of a master key, prompting him to inform people round the vicinity, who helped catch the suspect and set him on fire.

Before SARS officials could arrive the scene, the mob had already poured petrol on the suspect burning him beyond recognition.
