Damilare Olabimtan started this petition to The Nigerian Senate and

I survived Jungle Justice (Extra judicial killing) in 2016, it was a case of mistaken identity and i would have lost my life if it wasn't for the timely intervention of the police. On a weekly basis, a lot of lives are lost to jungle justice in Nigeria; men, women, even little children are not spared. In many cases, an accusation of theft or witchcraft results in torture and being burnt alive.

In 2016, a bill to criminalize jungle justice was sponsored on the floor of the Nigerian senate by Senator Dino Melaye, the bill if passed to law would protect victims from the violence and prosecute persons that partake in jungle justice. But after passing first and second reading, the bill is stuck on the floor of the senate and has not been discussed or deliberated on.

Humanity needs you to get behind our movement and help sign this petition to make our lawmakers consider the bill and pass it into law, we need it in effect to save lives and protect our people from acts of extra judicial killings and torture. It's a enough! Jungle justice should not have a place in our society in the year 2020, its a gross violation of fundamental rights to life and fair hearing.

Help sign this petition.
