#JungleJustice in Nigeria is a form of extrajudicial killing that involves lynchings and killings, taking the law into one's hands without leaving the job to the law enforcement agencies.

Following the killing of a boy in Lagos weeks back, the Nigerian Senate on Monday moved to pass the anti Jungle Justice Bill.

The Anti Jungle Justice Bill went in for 1st reading in the Senate on Tuesday 11th August, 2016 & 2nd reading Weds 5th October, 2016.

The Anti Jungle Justice Bill seeks to criminalize all forms of lynching, mob action and extrajudicial killing of anyone.

The bill aimed to to discourage the use of jungle justice by ensuring the wheel of proper justice is well oiled.

The bill which is sponsored by Sen Dino Melaye representating Kogi West Senatorial district will ensure that perpetrators of lynchings and mob actions are brought to book.

The extrajudicial killings has of late been on the increase

I support this bill. Citizens are not supposed to take the law into their hands. Let the police do their job else it amounts to murders and manslaughter.

I saw it on the Senate's Bill tracker as sponsored by Sen Dino Melaye (APC, Kogi West). It is not enough passing bills but identifying what leads to jungle justice which amongst other things is ineffectiveness of our security agencies.

Pls lets all stand together and stop this nonsense. Even God gives chance for repentance.

BUT...
But sincerely, why people resort to this is because they have lost confidence in our police and law enforcement agencies. I knew of a killer armed robber that has bribed the local police so much that they release each time he gets arrested because of his connection.

So the people planned that next time they catch him, they will kill him before the police came to rescue him again. And that they did. They burned him alive before the corrupt police came to his 'RESCUE'.

So the govt needs to tackle the causes.

Wrong target may be harmed and this is unacceptable. Justice system in Nigeria should brace up to make for confidence in it. Some cases of jungle justice arise from distrust in the system

Jungle justice is wrong and should be eliminated. Confidence needs to be restored back to the authorities.

Jungle Justice is an act in which any offender should be properly dealt with.
I think if the Government sets one person as an example, it will go a long way in putting and end to jungle justice.
But i smell tribalism in this law.
