  1. How can you blame the mob? It appears that this is the only way to get justice for the victims. We have not heard of the government or police doing anything tangible to bring the perpetrators to book. It took ordinary citizens to find the place and from the news reports even on this site, the residents of the area said that they reported the Ibadan ritual killing den to police a number of times and they said they were aware of its existence and that the place had a license from government to run a home for the mentally ill. Can you imagine that?

    So the police and the govt officials knew of the existence of the place for years and they covered it up, that is if they were not even part of those running it. So what hope is there for the common man in this country? Maybe that is why people seek justice any way they can because its the only justice they may get
