Jungle Justice: An Injustice To Humanity -Read The Deep Aspect Of It , What Do Cause it and Others

PHYSINEWS:Life is a delicate gift every living person has in his/her possession. Its divine origin crystallizes life's sanctity, thus gainsaying any school of thought that rationalizes it being taken away from the possessor with impunity. It is in the bid to preserve and optimize human existence that necessitated what we know today as a state. It is underscored in the social contract or constitution of nations the human person's peculiarity and pertinence in sustaining whatever ideals contained in it.
Justice occupies a prominent place in any society's modus operandi, although it tends to be interpreted differently. The misconception of that which is just and how to bring it about has culminated in a lot of atrocities and cataclysmic events, which has seen many lose their lives outside the ambit of the law. That this trend is commonplace in the Nigerian setting evokes sadness and moots the subject of jungle justice for dissection.

Questions about the appropriateness or inappropriateness of jungle justice is often posed in everyday discussions. Those by the newspaper vendors' stand argue for hours, trying to excavate an answer that would deal with such curiosity. Jungle justice, as the prefix implies, is the kind of justice dispensed without recourse to societal/constitutional laws. Society connotes a governmental structure, for "Ubi sociatas ibi jus." Where there is society, there is law. Not aligning with its stipulations on contentious matters make one guilty of the justice usually served hot in the jungle, where uncertainty is preeminent and safety is often elusive. This sort of justice seems to have displaced our judicial system. With the mob playing a bifocal role of judge and prosecutor, this is deemed by many to be a quicker and better way of determining the fate of assailants or thieves. The valid yet incorrect argument put forward by jungle justice exponents is the snail-like pace of the Nigerian justice system. No doubt, the country's judicial system has its challenges but it is a budding one where changes, comparable to that of a maturing teenager, is ongoing. Yet, this judicial growth process makes no excuse for those who have an inclination to take laws into their hands. Killing the offender without lawful consent, which is typically preceded by a fair hearing, is evil, bad, and wickedness at its peak. It is a sheer reflection of injustice to humanity, even if those on the other end are guilty. 


More so, the way at which punishment that are not commensurate with crimes are meted out is suggestive of how unjust jungle justice is. How can the capital punishment be the only suitable penalty for every crime? Aluu four killings, where four handsome men, were taken to their early graves because they were alleged to be involved in robbery is a quintessence of injustice rather than justice. Recently, a seven-year-old boy was roasted for stealing garri. Without trial, the victims of jungle justice are decorated with tyres round their necks and made-up with big sticks that almost end up turning blood-red after usage. They wail, pleading for mercy that isn't forthcoming. With exiguous money in the pocket and unsure of the next meal, a member of the mob volunteers to buy fuel for setting the accused ablaze. Death then beckons. Vultures lurk, salivating as men prepare fellow men as food for them. Those who partake in this nefarious act are our fathers, mothers, brothers, and sisters. Would they prefer such for an erring family member, putting the Golden rule in view? Reconciling their considerate nature with this unseen ruthless, merciless side of them is a herculean task. Security agencies have repeatedly read the riot act to Nigerians but this has gone unheeded. The logical step to take is to enact a law that would sanction any road-side justice participant (including on-lookers) by jailing him/her for a number of years, thereby serving as a deterrent to others.

However, this brutish behaviour exhibited by many today, in this part of the world, dispute the rationality that humans are synonymous with. Sanity is handing over apprehended individuals to the police. The pandemonium it infuses to our national atmosphere refutes Nigeria's regard for the United Nations Declaration of Human rights in 1948, of which the "Right to life" is fundamental. Jungle justice is out of place and counteproductive to our judicial system. It is true that justice delayed is justice denied but justice quickened, gained on the road-side, is far worse.
