The Police Command in Akwa Ibom has vowed to prosecute those who take the laws into their hands in the form of jungle justice against suspected criminals.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Superintendent of Police Odiko Macdon in Uyo on Thursday.

Jungle justice is a form of public extrajudicial killing or where an alleged criminal is humiliated, beaten or summarily executed by a crowd.

Macdon said that the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Andrew Amiengheme recently frowned at the high rate of jungle justice by some irate mob in the state and has now vowed to prosecute offenders.
