Residents of Ikorodu, Lagos state, have eventually caught and killed a notorious pedophile who terrorised their neighborhood for months.
The yet-to-be identified man, known only as “Badoo”, has been detained and punished hours after raping an 8-year-old girl.
The sexual abuse reportedly took place during a celestial church vigil on Sunday, July 24.
The locals hunted for the criminal immediately after one of the church members found the young victim helplessly lying at the church premises.
The criminal was nabbed while hiding inside a primary school. He was stoned to death, whereupon his body put on fire.
Jungle justice is an extrajudicial punishment by an informal group. It is most often used to characterize informal public executions by a mob in order to punish an alleged transgressor.
This form of justice frequently occurs in Africa where people still believe in the old method of taking justice into their own hands.
