Jungle Justice Again?! Four Men Burnt to Death in Mushin, Lagos over Alleged Robbery



While we are still yet to get over the shock of the four undergraduate students of University of Portharcourt who were killed by a mob some weeks ago, another set of gory pictures of men who were burnt alive have circulated the internet. It was reported that four men who allegedly went to rob last night were caught and burnt alive on Vono street, Mushin, Lagos this morning.

The men were alleged to have gone on a robbery operation last night before they met their waterloo in the hands of angry residents of the area. The residents apprehended them and burnt them alive before the Police could get to the scene.

It is sad that our people haven’t learnt from the experience of Aluu4 murders and still believe we have to take the law into our own hands. This is not justice, this is murder and we shouldn’t continue killing people on the streets. The value of a human life should be worth something.

The man in the picture above is reportedly one of the victims. The pictures are really gory. Click here to have a look at them *viewer discretion is advised*.

    I don’t support such killings. That being said; we should also blame our lack of reliable security system and corrupt police. In a country where justice is never attainable ppl are pushed to take laws into their hands. Nigerians are angry and that rage is expressed in diff ways.

    You know sometimes we assume the whole world heard something or understand what we support cos we relate with minds like ours on our different social media sites but not everyone is on BB, not everyone can even read english, a large percentage of these people have no access to internet. Majority of the people who have enough means to communicate via these media will likely not be able to effectively execute jungle justice to the extent of burning people alive. the people that can have the heart to do things like this, most of them are out there on the street and they dont understand all these grammar we are blowing about human rights, proper judicial process. we have to prove to them that’s a better way to deal with crime and we have to say it in a language they understand.
    People will also do this cos they’re angry and because they don’t trust the law enforcement agencies and our judicial system. Kindly take time and read this article I stumbled upon about some people that were involved in murder and how they got away with it despite all the effort someone made to bring them to book being.

    Lets separate an armed robber from the Aluu Four Mistake,the issue is that i support Jungle justice on Armed robbers, thief,or whatever. just recently a police sergent dismissed from armed robbery, after getting bail went back to commit the same crime. so many of this armed robber usually get released by the police and come back to kill their former victims for daring to hand them over to the Police,an Armed robber must not be spared because they too dont repect human lives,they have made several people Widow,widowers,ophans.An eye for an eye.

    I find the bash-fulness of a couple of the posters surprising. While I don’t support burning people with tyres, it is not exactly new to lagos so we can quit the whole “Nigerians are getting worse day after day” talk. I first witnessed a robber get burnt when I was 6 – 18 years ago – and really I have seen several since then.
