Jungle Justice in my words is justice metted out to an accused without proper court hearings or legal council to represent the accused thus the accused is judged, found guilty and sentenced then and there. lol
In Nigeria we do dish out jungle justice alot and i don't think this is right has it is not in the constituition neither is it supposed to be allowed. But it sure is, even the supposed law enforcement officers still participate in the law of jungle justice.
It is not so shocking again that accused armed roobers caught are shot dead before going to trial.
Once i was a young girl and happened to be in the car with my folks and they was a huge crowd all around a man and infront of us he was beaten blue black and then had a tyre and petrol poured over him and he was burnt alive.
It was such a traumatic experience for me that the picture of this fatal incident still plays in my head and mind, that i could do nothing to prevent his death and no one person could stop or plead against it tells us the kind of sick people we have amongst us.
Mistakes are made, wrong assumptions can be made when jungle justice is metted out. Remember the days of OPC where all you need to do is report someone that he is a thief and the OPC guys come down to kill the person, that was a barbaric way of life and i am happy the group was banned.
Every individual accused of a crime be it a murderer,armed robber, fraudster whatever the crime is, needs to be well represented and tried in a court of Law.
