 Nigeria Police Force Condemns Jungle Justice

by Sopuru Sopuru

In a statement released by the Nigeria Police Force, the condemnation of jungle justice resounds loudly, echoing the detrimental impact such actions have on the nation’s justice system. The Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, reiterated the dire consequences of vigilantism and mob actions, emphasizing the need to uphold the rule of law for a fair and just society.

Adejobi stressed that jungle justice, often described as taking the law into one’s own hands, poses a significant threat to the effective administration of justice. He highlighted a disturbing incident in Lagos State where a security guard, Agunbiade Adekunle, resorted to killing and setting ablaze a suspected vandal. This act, which was condemned by the police, underscores the dangers of extrajudicial killings and the erosion of the criminal justice system’s integrity.

The statement further emphasizes that jungle justice perpetuates a cycle of violence, prejudice, and lawlessness, ultimately undermining the authority of legitimate institutions and weakening the rule of law. It is described as a dangerous and regressive practice that has no place in a civilized society.

The Nigeria Police Force called upon the public to reject vigilantism and uphold the principles of democracy, human rights, and equality for all. Instead of resorting to mob justice, communities are urged to support fair and transparent legal processes, ensuring that justice is served without prejudice or bias.

In conclusion, the statement serves as a reminder of the importance of upholding the rule of law and condemning all forms of extrajudicial killings. Only through collective efforts to promote justice and fairness can Nigeria build a society where the rights and dignity of every individual are respected and protected.
