Two jungle justice victims have been rescued by the Akwa Ibom police command.
The state police spokesperson, Odiko MacDon said the victims have been identified as Ubong Sunny Ossom who stole two bottles of Campari at a supermarket in Uruan LGA, and one Christian Effiong who stole a generator in Ibesikpo Asutan LGA.
They were almost burnt to death before being rescued by the police.
The police warned perpetrators of jungle justice to desist from the act, adding that the command would arrest and prosecute offenders. It also stated that while stealing is a crime, jungle justice is not in line with the nation’s legal system.
