Two robbery suspects have been reportedly buried alive by two siblings at Igbokoda, headquarters of Ilaje Local Government Area of Ondo State for allegedly stealing N130,000, TheNation reports.

The siblings-Omoniyi Alaleran and Oluwaseun Enikuomehin- accused Igbekele Orisabinole and Ogbaro Erinbo of stealing their mother’s money.

She told her children who tortured the duo to confess and bring out the missing money.
