The Delta State Police Command has arrested a young man, Sunday Linus, who instigated jungle justice on an old woman after falsely claiming that she stole his manhood.
According to the Spokesman for the command, DSP Bright Edafe, the woman was beaten up and stripped naked by a mob for a crime she never committed.
Edafe said when operatives of the command arrived at the scene, the woman was rescued and later findings revealed that the man made up the claim against her.
He said, “SAY NO TO JUNGLE JUSTICE
“On Sunday 8th October 2023 at DBS Road Asaba, this 18-year-old suspect Ebube Linus raised a false alarm that an old woman inside a tricycle touched him and his manhood (penis) disappeared. Over 100 misguided touts gathered and mobbed this woman, stripping her naked and beating her to a stupor to the point of almost killing her.
“The Command was contacted and the DPO GRA division Asaba led policemen to the scene, rescued the woman, and arrested the suspect who we later discovered that nothing was wrong with him, as his manhood is intact. He just lied against a poor woman, a mother, a daughter, and a wife. Now the video of her being beaten and stripped naked is all over the internet. Does this make any sense? Why embark on self-help? why jungle justice? We are hunting for everybody on that video and they will be arrested and dealt with in accordance with the law alongside the suspect.”
