It has just been reported that an aggrieved father took laws into his hands by cutting leg of 36-year-old man who defiled his 6-month-old daughter in Edo state.
According to a social media user and activist, Prince Gwamnishu Harrison, he disclosed that the baby’s father caught the young putting his hand inside the girl’s body part. Instead of reporting the man to the police he took laws into his hands.
Harrison added that before blinking an eye, the baby’s father brought out a cutlass and cuts one of the man’s leg. The victim was immediately rushed to the hospital while the father of the baby was arrested for jungle justice.
His post reads: “36-YEAR-OLD DEFILE 6 MONTHS OLD BABY, FATHER CUT OFF HIS LEG WITH CUTLASS NOW IN POLICE CUSTODY. I traveled to Edo State where I facilitated the arrest and detention of two Igbenedion University Students who drugged and raped a female student and still threatened to eliminate her. The students are now in detention. Another one that shocked me is the defilement of 6 months old baby by 36 year old man. He was caught in the ACT inserting his hand. The baby’s father cut off his leg with a machete. The man was arrested for taking laws into his hand charged for ‘Grievous Harm’ and the man that defiled 6 months old baby is receiving treatment at the hospital (Both turned Accused). BBI was invited to help secure the release of the Baby’s father. The man informed us at the station that he cut off the leg out of annoyance and said he wants to withdraw the charge (Defilement) against the man to regain his freedom. The Baby’s father wants it 50-50…he wants to be freed and also the man who defiled her 6 months daughter freed from the charges. Are you mad? I asked him…. What should we do? Secure his release? OR get Justice for the little baby. BBI is against Jungle Justice. Don’t take laws into your hand… Report to the appropriate Authority.”
