Ikechi Kalu : “Abia Police Warns Against Jungle Justice, Urges Reporting of Suspected Criminals for Investigation”

Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Abia State Police Command Urges Citizens to Report Suspected Criminals Instead of Engaging in Jungle Justice

The Abia State Police Command has issued a stern warning against the practice of jungle justice in any part of the State. The command’s spokesperson, Maureen Chinaka, emphasized the need for citizens to report suspected criminals to the authorities for proper investigation rather than taking the law into their own hands.

Chinaka’s call came in response to recent reports of jungle justice in various areas of the State, including the disturbing case of Ikechi Kalu. Kalu, a father of one, was accused of stealing a motorcycle in one of the clans of Arochukwu LGA. Allegedly, a group of youths apprehended him, “convicted” him of the crime, and proceeded to set him on fire using tires.

A video of the gruesome incident has been circulating on the internet, depicting the victim being beaten before being immolated. This incident has raised concerns about the prevalence of jungle justice in the State.

In light of these events, the Police Command is urging residents of Abia State to refrain from taking the law into their own hands. Instead, they are encouraged to report any suspected criminals or individuals who may have violated the law. By doing so, the police can conduct proper investigations and ensure that justice is served in accordance with the law.

Furthermore, the Police Command has already made several arrests in connection with cases of jungle justice. They have assured the public that more arrests will be made to bring perpetrators to justice.

Jungle justice is a grave violation of human rights and undermines the rule of law. It is imperative for the community to trust in the legal system and allow the police to carry out their duties. By reporting suspected criminals, citizens contribute to the maintenance of law and order in the State.

The Abia State Police Command remains committed to protecting the lives and property of its citizens. They are determined to put an end to the dangerous practice of jungle justice and ensure that all individuals are afforded their right to a fair trial.
