Bandit's Menace: Jungle Justice Is A Law For The Jungle, There Should Be No Room For It In Nigeria

According to a report from Daily Trust, an enraged mob stormed the Divisional Police Headquarters in Tangaza Local Government Area of Sokoto State on Saturday, killing 13 suspected bandits whose bodies were burned to ashes.

The bandits were said to be among those who stormed the area around 8 p.m. on Friday and killed two people, one of whom was a shop owner. They were said to have taken some food from the shop and forced two residents to carry the food into the bush, where they were killed.

Later, the police and local security guards were called in and went after them. Thirteen of the attackers were apprehended in Tangaza forest early in the morning and taken to the Divisional police headquarters.

According to a resident who requested anonymity, after the suspected bandits were brought to the station, angry youths stormed the building, overpowered the police, and killed all of the suspects, whose bodies were set on fire.

The decision taken by these angry mobs is barbaric and uncivilised. Jungle justice is a law for the jungle, not Nigeria. When mob rules, there is a higher chance of people taking law into their own hands.

I won't deny the fact that these bandits have perpetrated all kinds of evil and deserved to be punished. The best idea would have been to leave these bandits in the hands of the police for a thorough investigation. These mobs went too far by taking law into their own hands.
