Skeletons of burnt men

Reports say two villagers have been burn to death by their angry fellow villagers of  the Bambalang community in Ngokentunjia Division of the North West Region of Cameroon.

The victims whose names have been withheld for security reasons are accused of killing one of their brothers Mr. Tawah Vincent at 'Nchoding', a popular fishing point in Bambalang.

Between 2013 and 2016, four different cases of mob justice have been reported with 5 deaths recorded. 3 of these deaths were recorded in 2016 alone making 2016 the deadliest year. It is common knowledge that no one has the right to take another person's life. It appears this common knowledge could not be common to the Bambalang people. Only the police and the court have the right to decide over the faith of an alleged murderer or thief. 

The reasons why the two roasted men killed their brother is still mystery, but now that they too have been burnt to death, who will tell the story?
