On the gram he wrote, I woke up this morning with so much pain in my heart, Nigeria how did we get here, there is so much anger & frustration in the land. Almost everyone is 2 secs away from turning into a werewolf. Pls I am begging, this #junglejustice trend needs to stop. Today is Deborah & David, tomorrow it can be me, you or someone close to home, take a minute & think about it. Like how are you going about your business, & suddenly you stop to mob, lynch & set another human being ablaze, in the public glare of everyone, you need to be evaluated in a mental institution, arrested & locked away PERMANENTLY, you are a menace to society & not fit to coexist. Who died & made you judge, jury & executor.

Section 33(1) of the Nigerian constitution provides that “every person has right to life & no one should be deprived intentionally of his life”. Also, Section 319 of the criminal code clearly stipulates that when a group of persons take laws into their hands by assaulting or summarily executing a suspected criminal, they are guilty of the offense of assault punishable by 1 year imprisonment, or murder which is punishable by death. More often than not, innocent people are the victims of jungle justice. We are still trying to find #justicefordeborah now we also seeking #justicefordavid, we can’t keep loosing Nigeria youth to senseless killings. Lawmakers needs to put in place & enforce stringent laws to abolish jungle justice, it’s barbaric, inhumane & uncivilized. May God comfort the families/friends of the deceased in ways that only him can. alex ekubo
