CLEEN Foundation in support of Devatop Africa at the official Launch of the #REDCARD2JUNGLEJUSTICE Campaign
Due to the increase of crime and the disbelief of Nigerian citizens in the security actors to met out justice to crime perpetrators, many Nigerians have taken the law into their hands, attacking and lynching offenders when they commit a crime, this have been commonly termed jungle justice.
Jungle justice have continually been on the rise in Nigeria and a lot of innocent lives have been lost in between, other than this, a lot of petty criminals have been charged to immediate death sentence which they do not deserve.
In conjunction with CLEEN Foundation, Devatop Africa launched a #REDCARD2JUNGLEJUSTICE campaign, a platform to sensitize people about the danger of jungle justice and why the practice must cease immediately.
During the official launch of #REDCARD2JUNGLEJUSTICE, we had represented different security agencies and Civil Society Organizations who highly condemned the vicious act the taking another life. The general public were encouraged to report incidences of theft or any other crime to the nearest police station around them. The Honorable justice of the of the federation and the Inspector general of police were ably represented, the Assistant Director General of the Nigerian Vigilante Group was present, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) was represented and a host of others.
