Spokesman of the com­mand, Mr David Misal, told newsmen in Jalingo that the fifth suspect, Salisu Zakari, who narrowly escaped the mob action, was arrested and detained in the command.

He said that the mob had forcefully removed the sus­pects from a local vigilante group station at Tella and hacked them to death.

“The incident occurred on August 6 (Sunday). Five peo­ple were sighted in Tella and were suspected to be kidnap­pers.

“They were arrested by a local vigilante group, but be­fore being handed over to the police, a group of irate youths lynched them and threw their bodies into the river.
