The mob, according to a youth leader in the community who spoke to Ripples Nigeria on the development, mobilised on Tuesday evening and marched to the house arned with different weapons, where they vandalised the one-storey building before setting it on fire.
The youths were also said to have carted away with all the properties in the building, taking away the father of the suspected killer to the police station.
“The youths have been really angry at what Uduak allegedly did,” the youth leader who spoke on condition of anonymity said.
“As much as we tried to calm them down and beg them to allow the police handle the matter, they refused to listen to anyone. They even attempted to attack me, saying I was in support of Uduak.
“They broke the louvers and the glass doors with the help of heavy pebbles and sticks and carted away everything in the building. They then marched his old father to the police station while chanting war songs.
