As the nation continues to mourn and seek justice for Deborah Samuel, a student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto burnt alive, and also a sound engineer, David who was also burnt to death by a group of Okada riders within the Lekki axis of Lagos State.

In an outburst of the sudden events, Alex Ekubo, in a lengthy post on his Instagram page said he woke with so much pain in his heart, stating that there is so much anger and frustration in the land.

According to Alex Ekubo, the Nigerian constitution provides that everyone has the right to life, however, when a group of persons takes laws into their hands by taking a life or harming one, they must be faced with a jail sentence or killed like-wise.

He further stated that lawmakers need to put in place and enforce stringent laws to abolish jungle justice because it’s barbaric, inhumane & uncivilized.

He wrote: “I woke up this morning with so much pain in my heart, Nigeria how did we get here, there is so much anger & frustration in the land”.

Almost everyone is 2 secs away from turning into a werewolf. Pls I am begging, this #JungleJustice trend needs to stop”.

“Today is Deborah & David, tomorrow it can be me, you or someone close to home, take a minute & think about it”.

“Like how are you going about your business, & suddenly you stop to mob, lynch & set another human being ablaze, in the public glare of everyone, you need to be evaluated in a mental institution, arrested & locked away PERMANENTLY, you are a menace to society & not fit to coexist, Who died & made you judge, jury & executor”.

“Also, Section 319 of the criminal code clearly stipulates that when a group of persons take laws into their hands by assaulting or summarily executing a suspected criminal, they are guilty of the offense of assault punishable by 1 year imprisonment, or murder which is punishable by death”.

“We are still trying to find #JusticeForDeborah now we also seeking #JusticeForDavid, we can’t keep loosing Nigeria youth to senseless killings”.

“Lawmakers needs to put in place & enforce stringent laws to abolish jungle justice, it’s barbaric, inhumane & uncivilized”.
