Suspected bandits who allegedly kidnapped and killed two people within Isoko community in Delta State have been apprehended and subsequently burnt alive by aggrieved youths in the locality.

In the bloody encounter, six of the suspected bandits were reportedly neutralised by the angry youths.

It was further learnt that members of the community vigilante group, armed with weapons such as cutlasses and locally made guns were operating in collaboration with the police.
