  1. It is true, what if they are innocent? The problem is because there is hardly justice in Nigeria that is why people are doing the judgement by themselves

  2. They got more than they bargained for. People don’t just become notorious for no reason. If it looks like a snake, crawls like a snake, sounds like a snake….. it is a snake. A warning to other potential criminals in their community that jungle justice shall be meted out to them. The Police cannot act so the people are doing everything in their power to protect their children.

  3. @ Princess Kehinde Aderemi, don’t let’s go back on this issue because most of the evil people are smarter than you thought. They will prefer to be handed over to the police because police investigation never ends and there is a vacuum in the law that gives them chances that all suspects presume innocent until proven guilty in the court of law.

    Mind you, people are behind these horrific acts, ritual, kidnapping, banditry etc. It is people like you that are behind this ugly incidence. Victims will not cut their part themselves to be used for ritual. It is we neighbors, friends and relatives. If we dwell on may be if they are innocent, we will never have a functioning society.

    This barbaric act using human part for ritual is becoming endemic and must stop at all cost. Our law enforcement officers can only do little in trying to secure justice. I think this will serve as a deterrent to any intending rituals. If you want to kidnap in this community, you have to think twice.

    I love this style of justice, you may call it jungle justice but I don’t think so because people in that community have investigated even to that woman (Native Doctor) who sent them to go and hunt for probably a virgin girl for money making ritual. Gone were those days even in the Biblical time when some kings sacrificed their children to Baal God so they can win a war. This is civilized age, nobody does that anymore. How would you feel if your daughter or son is being mutilated for money ritual? Won’t you like to see justice serve if the perpetrators were being caught?

    • God bless you for your intelligent, common sense response, Jilo. Innocent ko, Alphonso ni. We’ve gotten to the stage whereby calling oneself a Nigerian is an embarrassment. If money rituals are so profitable, why can’t herbalists perform it on themselves and why are they so poor like church rats? It’s only in Nigeria that we see egregious crimes on such magnitude and society has accepted it as every day normal events

  4. this is jungle justice , they say a suspected how can people take law’s into their own hands , if at all they are what they have being labelled as you leave it to the police , they are not guilty of any crime until proven guilty in a criminal court, whoever are the people who did this heinous crime they should be rounded up and punished,, what a barbaric act
