A suspected bandit in Zamfara State apprehended by members of the Civilan JTF, has been executed by an angry mob.
The mob, apparently angered by the incessant killings in the state and the inability of the government to curb their actions, decided to take the law into their hands.
According to reports, the incident occurred in Shinkafi local government area of the state, where about 40 persons were killed by armed bandits over the weekend.
A witness at the scene who posted the photos on social media wrote:
