Eleme/ Alesa Youths Apprehends Habitual Thief Who Survived Angry Mob Last Year, Caught Inflicting Fisherman With Matchete Injuries

by Anita Ogona

Youths under the umbrella of Eleme Youth Council,  on Thursday morning, mobilized and apprehended one Nede, an alleged notorious criminal accused of habitually robbing passersby and terrorizing Alesa community in Eleme Local Government Area.

A source said the youths went in search of the suspect after they received report that he used a machete to inflict deep cuts on a fisherman, for reasons yet unknown, and scampered.

The combined Youth team led by both the Alesa Youth Council and Eleme Youth Council respectively said the suspect has been handed over to the Eleme Police Division for proper investigation.

About two years ago, Nede was reportedly caught at the refinery junction with a rifle, and an angry mob had stripped and set him ablaze but Some of his sympathizers were said to have used water to put out the fire, and he survived.

An eyewitness told that nothing had been heard from him since that incident until reports emerged this morning about his encounter with the fisherman.
