The riders gave a speed chase and caught up with the suspects at the junction of Rabai and Mumia Road in Buruburu.

An irrate mob descended on the two thieves before setting them ablaze.

Other Boda operators noted that such cases of phone snatching are on the rise adding that they will lynch any other suspect.

Area police arrived later after the two had already turned into ash and the crowd had dispersed.
