Anambra CP Warns Residents Against Carrying Out Jungle Justice






CP Aderemi Adeoye, the Anambra State Commissioner of Police has warned residents against carrying out jungle justice.

He stated that the Command would no longer tolerate any form of lynching on crime suspects.

This was contained in a statement signed by the state Police Public Relations Office, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, on Friday, stating that  perpetrators of such act would be charged with murder according to the commissioner.

He described the act of lynching as bestial.

The PPRO said two suspects had been arrested for involvement in a recent mob lynching that resulted in the death of suspected criminals.

“Someone steals a phone, and a mob kills him. The sentence for stealing a phone is three years imprisonment.

“Those who lynch commit murder which carries the death penalty because the Courts have not delegated anyone outside the Judiciary to try, convict, and execute suspects,” he said.

Adeoye commended Anambra residents for their eternal vigilance and cooperation for peace and security in the state but urged them to report every criminal matter to the Police.

According to him, “If they do not get justice, they should contact my office directly.
