The FCT Police Command has warned residents against taking laws into their own hands or resorting to jungle justice in any criminal or alleged criminal situations, as it only breeds lawlessness and disruption of public peace in an already existing peaceful environment.

“The suspect was almost being lynched by irate youths when the Police operatives attached to Karshi Division acting on actionable intelligence swiftly mobilized to the scene and rescued the suspect from the mob.

“The Commissioner of Police, FCT, CP Haruna G. Garba psc, cautions the members of the public to shun all forms of mob action or jungle justice while enjoining them to follow the legal and appropriate channel to express grievances whenever the need arises, as the FCT Police Command is committed to preserving peace and security of all.
