The Edo State Commissioner of Police, Mohammed A. Dankwara, has expressed concern over the incessant cases of jungle justice in the state.
This was as an angry mob on November 27, 2022 lynched a suspected motorcycle thief in a case of jungle justice.
The CP implored citizens of Edo State to repose a little more confidence in the Rule of Law and in the Law enforcement institutions.
Dankwara made the call on Monday following the death of a man, whose identity is yet unknown, in the hands of a mob on Sunday at Iyanamo Community, off Ekehuan Army Barracks, Benin City.
The victim was allegedly mobbed to death over an allegation that he stole an unregistered motorcycle.
It was gathered that at least four persons linked to the death of the deceased have been arrested and are assisting the Police in their investigation.
The CP has also directed that the case be transferred from Evbuotubu Police Station to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Benin for further investigation.
