Ashiribo was said to be returning from church when he saw the gang in the area, and recognised them immediately, because they were the same men he had chased just days earlier. He got off his motorcycle and confronted them.

Sources said Ashiribo overpowered and handcuffed two members of the gang but he was shot dead by the other two members who fled immediately.

Angered by the incident, Residents rushed in and lynched the two gang members who had been handcuffed by Ashiribo. Witnesses said Ashiribo died before help could come his way.

The three dead bodies were taken away by the Police in their pick-up van to the Badagry General hospital where medical officials confirmed them dead.

The bodies have been deposited in the mortuary.
