DSP Agbodeka said while Adikah was about to get on to the motorbike, Mavis caught up with him and held him from behind screaming, thus drawing the attention of residents.

He said some residents assisted to arrest the two suspects, adding that but for the timely intervention of the police, they would have been lynched by an angry mob.
