Jungle Justice has recently become a widely practiced act in different communities of Nigeria, and it seems more of the barbaric acts are being reported daily.
Recently, some five suspected criminals lost their lives to mob Justice in the hands of some youths in Anambra state, and the state police seems to be bothered by the development. The Anambra state commissioner of police, Chris Owolabi has however sent out warnings so all able youths of different communities of Anambra state, asking them to actively desist from the evil act.
The commissioner sent the warnings out on Friday May 21st, 2021, in response to the mob Justice that saw the five suspected criminals lynched in Anambra state recently.
However, the CP went ahead to appreciate the effort of the youths in Anambra state, claiming that the youths have been assisting in the curbing of crimes in the state. The Anambra state police, through the state police public relations officer, Ikenga Tochukwu released a statement where it was clearly stated the dissatisfaction of the state police towards jungle Justice.
Personally, I would however advised the youth to take this warning seriously, besides Jungle Justice is evil and should not be encouraged by anyone.
