It was a very sad day for three suspected thieves who met their end in Ndokwa West Local Government Area, LGA, of Delta state.

The three suspects were caught when they wanted to burgle into a pastor’s house located along the Utagba Ogbe area of the LGA.

The suspects were beaten black and blue by irate mob but for the timely intervention of the police, they would have been lynched.

It has not been ascertained if the suspects were able to cart away with any of the valuables from the pastor’s possession.
