Nollywood actor, Alexx Ekubo has reacted to the sudden trend of Jungle Justice all over the country.

This comes following the death of Deborah Samuel, a Christian student of the  Shehu Shagari College of Education who was killed on the grounds of committing the crime of blasphemy, and David, a sound engineer who was lynched over #100.

He shared an emotional video of the mourning wife of David, whose husband was murdered by jungle justice.

Alexx went on to quote sections of the law that clearly state that such acts are punishable. He, however, noted that Nigerians need to desist from these trends, as those involved continue to be menaces to society.

Via his words, he wrote; 

"Alexx went on to quote sections of the law that clearly state that such acts are punishable. He, however, noted that Nigerians need to desist from these trends, as those involved continue to be menaces to society.

In his words; I woke up this morning with so much pain in my heart, Nigeria how did we get here, there is so much anger & frustration in the land.
Almost everyone is 2 secs away from turning into a werewolf.

Pls I am begging, this #JungleJustice trend needs to stop.
Today is Deborah & David, tomorrow it can be me, you or someone close to home, take a minute & think about it.

Like how are you going about your business, & suddenly you stop to mob, lynch & set another human being ablaze, in the public glare of everyone, you need to be evaluated in a mental institution, arrested & locked away PERMANENTLY, you are a menace to society & not fit to coexist.
Who died & made you judge, jury & executor.

Section 33(1) of the Nigerian constitution provides that “every person has right to life & no one should be deprived intentionally of his life”

Also, Section 319 of the criminal code clearly stipulates that when a group of persons take laws into their hands by assaulting or summarily executing a suspected criminal, they are guilty of the offense of assault punishable by 1 year imprisonment, or murder which is punishable by death.

More often than not, innocent people are the victims of jungle justice.

We are still trying to find #JusticeForDeborah now we also seeking #JusticeForDavid, we can’t keep loosing Nigeria youth to senseless killings.

Lawmakers needs to put in place & enforce stringent laws to abolish jungle justice, it’s barbaric, inhumane & uncivilized.

May God comfort the families/friends of the deceased in ways that only him can. ? ?"
