The Edo State Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed A. Dankwara has frowned at the incessant cases of jungle justice in the State and therefore implores citizens of Edo State to repose a little more confidence in the Rule of Law and in the Law enforcement institutions.

CP Dankwara made this call on Monday, 28th, 2022 following the death of a man, whose identity is yet unknown, in the hands of a mob, yesterday, 27th November, at Iyanamo Community, Off Ekehuan Army Barracks, Benin City.

According to the statement issued and signed by SP Cbhidi Nwabuzor, “the victim was allegedly mobbed to death over an allegation that he stole an unregistered motorcycle.

“Four persons linked to the death of the deceased have been arrested and are assisting the Police in their investigation. The four suspects are Emmaneul Igube – 19 years, Matthew Gimba – 39 years, Monday Nathaniel – 30 years and Gabriel Akuba – 20 years.

“Meanwhile, the Edo State Commissioner of Police has directed that the case be transferred from Evbuotubu Police Station to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Benin for further investigation.”
