Chaos in Ogun as mob sets three kidnappers ablaze

Pandemonium broke out yesterday April 30th in Ijoko Ota in Ado-Odo-Ota LGA of Ogun State around 9am when a mob set 3 suspected kidnappers ablaze after their victim, one Elizerbeth Oduwole screamed for help.
 
Reports say the lady's scream attracted passersby who got hold of the kidnappers, beat them to a pulp before setting them ablaze. The vehicle they rode in was also set ablaze by the angry mob.
 
Confirming the incident, the Police PRO in the state, Muyiwa Adejobi said the victim, 26year old Elizabeth who resides in Atan-Ota had boarded a vehicle to Ewekoro but found herself in Gas Line in Ijoko were she immediately screamed for help. Continue...

“She screamed from the vehicle in which she was being taken to their den when she observed that she was in another place and the people in the area blocked the vehicle, beat the occupants, killed them and burnt them to ashes. The victim is being interrogated; the suspects were burnt to ashes. We are going to use multifaceted approach; we want to know if there had been an interaction between the suspects and the victim. The jungle justice affected our case. The people alerted us at the Headquarters instead of calling the DPO in Ota, and immediately we asked the DPO to move to the scene, but, before they got there, the suspects had been killed and burnt to ashes. It was a heavy inferno; they put tyres on the suspects and set them ablaze. We have evacuated their ashes. We have taken over the matter; we are still investigating the matter.  We condemn jungle justice, people should desist from this act”, the PPRO, said.
 
Meanwhile  on Tuesday April 29th in Abeokuta, men of the state's Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps rescued a middle aged woman named Favor Okoye from being lynched by an angry mob for allegedly kidnapping a baby at about 2.55pm along Toroto street  in Abeokuta.
 
In a statement released by the Public Relations Officer of the NSCDC in the state, Olanrewaju Kareem, they were able to rescue the woman after a taxi driver alerted his men of a woman who had been beaten to a pulp and was in the pool of her blood 
 
According to him, “a taxi driver alerted civil defence men keeping vigil on critical infrastructures around Akin-olugbade/Pepsi/Totoro areas that a woman has been attacked around Totoro and was about to be killed. The men quickly raced to the scene to rescue the woman but, all efforts and appeal by civil defence to allow the suspected kidnapper face the consequence through the legal process proved abortive as the mob insisted on killing the woman.
“Because of this development, the civil defence officer called office for reinforcement as a result of which armed men were deployed to the scene.

“In spite of the fact that those civil defence men on ground were able to take possession of the suspect and took her towards Akin-olugbade area in order to get a vehicle to convey her to a safe place, they were still followed and were all along resisting that the woman should not be taken away.
“The situation became more violent when the armed men of civil defence arrived. They threw available objects including bottles, planks, stones among others, the mob though succeeded in breaking the windscreen of civil defence vehicle but they were able to rescue the woman from being killed.

“The woman who was in a state of coma as she could not talk was immediately rushed to the Federal Medical Centre where she is receiving treatment. She gained consciousness after one hour after the first set of treatment had been administered on her.

“We therefore appeal to members of the public to always ensure justice through legal means as jungle justice will make innocent people to suffer”, he said.

Why wont they arrest those involved in the jungle justice rather than just telling them to desist...actions speak louder than words

Why wont they just provide employment/education so fewer people will be involve in jungle justice.

what is the difference between jungle justice and the inhumane treatments prisoners in Nigeria are subjected to.

Too many unanswered questions...the government has soo much to do...but also we as citizens have to take steps to make sure our country grows past this. it starts from you and I.

Seriously this jungle justice of a thing is just rubbish and why is that the people that did the jungle rubbish are not been arrested.... I believe if they start up some arrest the whole jungle rubbish will definately seize no doubt....

Jungle justice as one of Jeremy Bentham's political philosophy, is highly recommendable in ds our country, since FG r slow to national security.

Well said. Hope they were truly guilty of the crime.

They didn't even find out full details before burning them....people can be stupid shaa...that's why they say a mob is a group of people that consciously bereave themselves of common sense....And it seems Nigerians are good at it.....Every single time, mob this, mob that...they should be jailed.!

I trust my people from this side of the country. No dulling. If such measure was done at this chibok case, I'm sure plenty kids would have been rescued. However I don't rly support jungle justice but on the other hand too, don't disagree with the treatment of the accused if they are guilty. See how these ones met their death just for a head. 2015 is around the corner, pls let everyone be careful how they move around.

What is naija turning into. I love the land so much but it is rather discouraging that we have become a nation of heartless, thieving, conniving, wicked, murdering, looting people. This is truly getting out of control

If indeed they are guilty of kidnapping, then they deserve what they got!! These people are merciless. They kidnap victims, murder them for rituals most times and they expect their own lives to be spared? In my opinion sef, if they are caught in the act... rapists and kidnappers deserve to be treated this way. It will surely reduce these annoying acts of crime. As long as they are guilty, I feel no remorse or pity for them!! Attack me if you like, but that's that. **Kween**

I've been always been sceptical about these "alleged" broad daylight kidnappers.

So being of a different tribe is enough for bloodthirsty barbarians to brand you a kidnapper?

Nigerian madness is taking another dimension.

Why take laws into their hands

Nigerian said...

It is very sad to see human beings killing another human being.

It is even more sad that some people are comfortable standing by and watching.

I have witnessed a similar thing happen where a group of guys accused a woman of being a kidnapper and they organised the community to beat her up and kill her. Fortunately, she was a well dressed and some of the organised crowd members decided to call the police. It was later learnt that those guys work together in that area and the plan was to get money. The three guys had to be calling the elderly people in the community to beg so they do not get locked up.

If this is still happening 10 years later, I weep for Nigeria!

Who is to be blamed? The govt! The citizens of this nation have lost hope in justice. Among those ritual killers caught in the very act, what has happened to them? What has become of clifford orji and others? We hear stories from victims who were luky to escape ritual killers' death that influencial individuals are clients of these monsters. The register former police boss, balogun took away from okija, what happened to the people whose name are there? It is obvious that when ritual killers are arrestedwe just hear newsand it ends there. Thesame suspect is setfree and he or she change location. Govt should wake up to its responsibilities and carry out justice.I heard a news that people arrested for jungle justice were taking to court nad court ordered that they remain in prison, same shuld be done for ritual killers that were arrested.they shld face the wrath of the law.

In Norway,a man just got up and shot over 70 people to death for no reason. He was not beaten up and burned to death for this,instead,he was tried in a court of law and sent to jail. In America,the only survivor 911 plotters was arrested and tried for killings of thousands of people. He was not beaten and burned to death. In a civilised country,the rule of law comes before anything. But in a barbaric society like Nigeria,people commit murder in the name of justice. Such a shame that in the 21st century,people still condone extrer-judicial murder. So all a person has to do in Nigeria these days is scream "I am being kidnapped!" and they will beat and burn someone to death like festive Goat? If people are willing to do this then what makes them better than the person they are killing? Shame on Nigeria!!!!!!!
