The Delta State Police Command Public Relations Officer, SP Bright Edafe, has revealed circumstances surrounding the death of a man allegedly beaten by members of a local security watch group over a missing phone that was later found with the daughter of the accuser.

According to Edafe via a post on X on Tuesday, “Someone was accused of stealing a phone, a member of Anioma Security Watch mobilised his colleagues to beat him up till he died. They ran away after killing him.”

However, Edafe added, “Guess what? The phone was found with the daughter of the woman who raised the alarm.”

Edafe’s post was aimed at creating awareness towards putting an end to jungle justice as the PPRO posted a picture with the written words, “Red card to jungle justice.”

However, Edafe did not release the victim’s identity or indicate if any arrests had been made in connection with the killing.

Jungle justice, according to Researchgate, “is a form of public extrajudicial killings where an alleged criminal is humiliated, beaten or summarily executed by a crowd, vigilante or any other non-governmental law enforcement agencies.” (Punch)
