An unidentified bike man was beaten to a pulp by irate mob at Beckleys Estate, Abule Egba, Lagos for snatching a girl child from her mother.

The motorcyclist hurriedly snatched the girl and put her on his motorcycle and zoomed off. The mother of the child quickly raised an alarm, which attracted passersby and okada riders who gave him a swift chase.

When he discovered that the chase was getting hotter, he threw the girl off the bike, but the chasers did not stop until he was finally caught.

He was almost lynched but for the timely intervention of the policemen from Oko Oba Division.

The little girl who sustained injury was taken to the hospital for medical treatment while the suspect was taken away by the police who promised to look into the case.
