Desist from taking laws into your hands – Ogun PPRO

Following series of jungle justice recorded in some parts of Ogun State, the State Police Command says, it will no longer tolerate such practice as violators will face the wrath of the law.

The command also cautioned members of the public to desist from taking laws into their hands by applying jungle justice on people suspected of crimes.

Spokesperson of the command, Mr Abimbola Oyeyemi who described the most recent incident as unfortunate, said the allegation against the three people who were beaten to death and their vehicle set ablaze on mere suspicion of theft, has not been substantiated by anyone.

The Ogun Police Spokesman, who said that the quick intervention of police from Mowe Division saved two others from being gruesomely murdered, accused commercial motorcycle riders of being guilty of the barbaric act.

The command, therefore, reiterated that such unlawful behaviour would no longer be tolerated in any part of the state, adding that anybody caught in such would be decisively dealt with in accordance with the dictates of the law.
