JUNGLE JUSTICE: Angry Youths Burn Two Scavengers To Death For Killing.


Angry youths burn to death two Hausa scrap metal collectors for killing a youth in Afaha Oku, Ikpa community, in Uyo local government area of Akwa Ibom State.

The incident occurred in the early hours of Sunday January, 2, 2022 when many residents of the area had gone to church.

According to reports, one indigene of the community simply identified as Anietie, was beaten to coma by some alleged Hausa boys and was rushed to the hospital immediately, but unfortunately he died on the way.

According to an eyewitness, Anietie went to collect his clothes from the Laundry that Sunday morning, while returning to his compound; he sighted the two Hausa scrap metal collectors, with some items they removed. There is also a wielding shop in front of the compound.

He accosted them and asked them what they were doing in his compound; that who gave them permission to remove things from the compound, so two of the Hausa boys beat him and he collapsed. When Anietie’s brother who was inside the house saw what happened he raised the alarm.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Odiko MacDon, who confirmed the tragic incident on Monday, regretted that the deaths would have been averted if both the youths of the area and scrap collectors had not taken the Law into their own hands.

MacDon noted that Police preliminary investigation revealed that within the hours when people have left for Church, the two scrap metal dealers entered Anietie’s House and stole certain items, adding that the Commissioner of Police has ordered that a very thorough investigation be conducted while he still maintained the stance that Jungle justice has no place in our Laws.

The PPRO also reiterated that the proper thing people should always do is to hand over whoever was caught in the act of committing a crime to the police for discreet Investigation and prosecution, in order to maintain Law and order in the society.

He therefore warned that jungle justice would not be tolerated in the State in this 2022.
