CP DELTA WARNS DELTANS AGAINST TAKING LAWS INTO THEIR HANDS, ISSUES STERN WARNING TO HERDSMEN ALSO
The Commissioner of Police Delta State, CP Zanna M. Ibrahim, psc has warned Deltans against embarking on jungle justice. The CP, who gave the warning against the backdrop of recent attacks and killing of headsmen by Community youths in some parts of the state, noted that the resort to jungle justice is uncivilized, criminal and impedes the course of peace and security in the state, stressing that the people should learn to seek legal redress whenever they feel wronged.
The CP equally frowned at the attitude of the herdsmen who provocatively graze their cattle on people’s farm-lands and warned them to refrain from such criminal acts, stressing that any herdsman caught destroying people’s crops, molesting, or preventing farmers from accessing their farm lands or bearing fire-arms or any other dangerous weapons will be arrested and brought to book.
Meanwhile, the CP reassured Deltans of the readiness and willingness of the Police and other security agencies in the state to continually discharge their duties responsibly and called on Deltans to continue to support and cooperate with the security agencies towards ensuring that peace and security prevails in every part of the state.
