The incident happened on Sunday around Alakia Adelubi axis, Ibadan, around 9.20 a.m, according to Adewale Osifeso, the command's Public Relations Officer.

Speaking in the state capital, Ibadan, on Monday, Osifeso said that the command’s operatives were on patrol when they got a distress call on the “execution of Jungle justice”.
