Police operatives in Lagos have arrested four persons who allegedly carried out jungle justice on one David Imoh at Lekki Phase One area of the state.

The spokesman for the state police command, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the development in a statement on Sunday.

The victim was assaulted by some suspected commercial motorcyclists operating in the area when disagreement arose over a N100 balance.

He said: “The incident happened on May 12, 2022. Four persons were arrested the same day in connection with the act. We are on the trail of the fifth person, now at large.

“The victim is Sunday Imoh, 38 year old. The suspects will be prosecuted when arrested. We will make sure they are fully prosecuted so that they will serve as deterrents to others.”

The spokesman stressed that jungle justice was not allowed in Lagos State and warned the members of the public to guide against it.

“Don’t take the law into your hands,” he stated.
