Delta Police Commissioner Zanna M. Ibrahim.

The Commissioner of Police Delta State, CP Zanna M. Ibrahim, has warned Deltans against embarking on jungle justice. The CP gave the warning against the backdrop of recent attacks and killing of headsmen by community youths in some parts of the state. He noted that the resort to jungle justice is uncivilised and may affect peace and security in the state, stressing that the people should learn to seek legal redress whenever they feel wrong.

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. CP Ibrahim warned 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 would be arrested and brought to book.

The Delta police boss reassured Deltans of the readiness and willingness of the police and other security agencies in the state to continually discharge their duties responsibly. He called on Deltans to continue to support and cooperate with the security agencies towards peace and security of the state.
