After Rescuing inhabitants from nob attack, the Lagos state police command has warned inhabitants against engaging in jungle justice across the state
Narrating the ordeal that led to the rescue of some inhabitants in the state, the public relations officer, Benjamin Hundeyin on Wednesday said it happened on Eko bridge where four adults (including one grandmother) were beaten after they were suspected of being kidnappers.
A mob descended on the quartet because they had with them in their vehicle 12 children – between seven months and 12 years old.
Hundeyin noted that police officers from Ebute-Ero Division and the RRS rescued the adults from lynching.
“Their vehicle was totally burnt down by the mob”, the spokesman regretted.
“Preliminary investigation shows that they were coming from the beach where they allegedly went to do some sacrifices.”
The case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for further investigation.
