The Nigeria Police, Lagos Command, has reacted to the news making the rounds that another kidnapping/ritual den was uncovered at the Ile Zik area of Lagos Thursday saying that most of those suspected are destitute.
Speaking after the Police intervened in the commotion that resulted after the discovery, the Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Olarinde Famous-Cole informed that most of the people being accused are destitute who have nowhere to go. He added that the Police intervened to prevent jungle justice, questioning the rationale behind burning the human parts which eyewitnesses claimed to have found.
“We swung into action to protect some people from jungle justice. Most of these people are destitute; they live anywhere. It is unfair; let us investigate and come up with our findings. If truly they found human parts, what was the essence of setting them ablaze?”
The Police spokesman promised that the matter will be thoroughly investigated.
