Nse Ikpe-Etim narrates her true-life experience with jungle justice

Actress Nse Etim has just shared her true-life esperience story with Jungle Justice on twitter…enjoy!“I’ll tell you my experience #JungleJustice.  I took a night bus to Aba
some years ago from Abuja to the fabric market.

After I had walked
around and seen for myself, I went back to the park and decided to have a
beer.I brought out my laptop and started writing…trying to blend in
so I don’t look out of place.I was scared but knew that in a few hours, I
would be back home.
As I took a swig from my bottle and turned to my
laptop, in a flash…someone had lifted the bottle in pursuit of a young
man.I heard screams of ‘onye oshi’ ‘thief’…that’s when I realized
that the woman screaming had been robbed of her purse.
The woman claimed
she had only N200 and an umbrella in the purse. They pursued him,
caught him and put a tire on his neck.
They poured fuel on him and all I
could do was beg the officers there to help him. They looked at me funny
and struck the match.My journey
to the nation’s capital was no longer the adventure I hoped it would be,
it was my worst nightmare.
This isn’t a movie… I’m talking about
Jungle Justice in Nigeria. I think it’s sickening and sad. 
We cannot
lose our humanity.If a man does wrong, please seek the hands of the law.
Taking the law into your hands is barbaric and that’s not what we
should be.What’s your take on Jungle Justice? Let’s talk!””

    1. Quote "WE CANNOT LOSE OUR HUMANITY". Does she actually believe in this word?? If she does, why then did I not hear her condemn it!

  1. We all be preaching against Jungle Justice when in the real sense the victims deserve such punishment. It is wrong to steal. They deserve the jungle justice abeg

  2. Its evil why will you take somebodyz life because they stole?….. Let he without sins be the first to the cast the stone,please stop taking the law into your hands,let God be the judge

  3. Jungle justice is outrightly crazy…imagine Mr Anonymous 19 February 2014 09:02, if you were innocent and U look like the guy who did the crime and they sentenced you "by jungle justice"- WOULD YOU STILL THINK "They deserve the jungle justice abeg"? LET THAT SINK IN !!!
