From a disturbing report reaching us, some people living in the Aseese area of Mowe, Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State have taken justice into their hands by beating 3 people to death.
Ogun police have condemned the dastardly act of some residents for killing 3 travellers and burning their vehicle
From what we learnt, this barbaric act was carried in suspicion of a possible theft where the residents held 5 travellers and killed 3 of them while burning their vehicle to the ground.
This unfortunate incident was confirmed last Monday by one Abimbola Oyeyemi, who happens to be the Police PRO in Ogun State. He revealed that the mob would have killed the remaining two travellers if it had not been for the rapid intervention of the police officers from Mowe Division, who rescued them from these people.

Oyeyemi also decried the allegation of theft levied against the victims, which hasn’t been proven by anyone. The police spokesman made this statement while condemning the jungle justice meted out to those people.
The Police PRO disclosed that the police command is concerned and paying huge attention to the high rate at which some people in the state are taking laws into their hands, by applying jungle justice on anyone they suspect of committing a crime.

Oyeyemi sent a serious warning to those who partake in this unlawful act where he mentioned the motorcyclists as one of the main culprits of this barbaric act. He stated that the okada riders have known to attack any motorist involved in an accident with any of their colleagues, where they usually set the car on fire not minding whether their member is to be blamed or not.
He further said that anyone caught in such an unlawful act will be severely dealt with in accordance with the dictate of the law.
