Anambra CP Raise Alarm Over Rise In Mob Action and Jungle Justice In Anambra, Urge Residents To Exercise Restraint, Hand Suspects To Police

by Anita Ogona
MOB ACTION: CP OWOLABI URGES NDI ANAMBRA TO EXCERCISE RESTRAINT AND HAND OVER SUSPECTS TO POLICE FOR PROPER INVESTIGATION*
The Anambra State Police Command has noted with great concern the increase in cases of mob action in the State by some members of the public who resort to jungle justice whenever they arrest suspects in respect of criminal allegations without recourse to the Police for proper investigation.
Consequently, the Commissioner of Police *CP Chris Owolabi* while thanking members of the public for assisting the Police in apprehending suspected criminals also urged them to always exercise restraint by not taking the law into their hands. They should endeavor to take such suspects to the nearest Police Station whenever they are apprehended. This would afford the Police the opportunity to conduct appropriate investigation into the nefarious activities of the suspects; and bring them to justice in accordance with extant laws.
To this end, residents of the State are enjoined to remain law-abiding and vigilant. In the event of distress call or dissemination of useful information, call the *Command Control room numbers: 07039194332 or 08039334002 and Emergency No: 112.*
*DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, Anipr*
*Police Public Relations Officer(PPRO),
Anambra State Police Command.*
*21ST MAY, 2021*
In His word ”We thank you for helping us to apprehend suspected criminals but also urged you to always exercise restraint by not taking the law into your hands. You should endeavor to take such suspects to the nearest Police Station whenever they are apprehended. This would afford the Police the opportunity to conduct appropriate investigation into the nefarious activities of the suspects; and bring them to justice in accordance with extant laws.”
