Suspected Criminals Should No Longer Be Lynched – NAPTIP

The Director-General, DG, of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, NAPTIP, Julie Okah-Donli, has issued a warning that Nigerians should desist from the habit of lynching suspected criminals. 

According to Okah-Donli who spoke in Abuja, “The jungle justice clause is becoming worrisome as some citizens now take the law into their hands without an in-depth of what the crime is all about.

“The media is not doing enough concerning jungle justice. It appears it has come to stay; we all know how powerful the media is, this impunity must stop.

“The media can petition the police, the Inspector General of Police, to ensure that if someone is found killed or stripped naked in the name of jungle justice, those involved would be arrested.

“By the time the arrest is done, nobody will allow anyone to be treated that way around their houses, this will stop but it is like everyone is just keeping quiet concerning jungle justice.”
