It all happened just about 8:30 pm on Saturday 30th 0f September 2013 at Orhuwhorun Town in Udu Local Government area of Delta State.
Two children of the same parents went out to dispose their used books nearby and of a sudden they were chased into their house by a boy who claimed he is a vigilante, well-equipped with a gun and a cutlass during the chase.
The member of the compound came out to intervene but the vigilante said that as long as these children were caught trying to dispose the refuse by the bush path opposite the rail line, they have to face the consequence, he vowed he will have to take these girls away that night.
Then everyone started begging but the vigilante resisted, instead he called more of his associate and the atmosphere became demonically charged. The father of the children now decided to defend his children and he was arrested that night by the vigilante group.
Now the question asked was who gave these group the right to be arresting people for improper refuse dumping? they were employed to help in security matter why have they taken over the duty of the council worker.
They took the man chained and, brutalizes him, and demanded for bail of N15 000, until the succor came. right in the presence of the man, these self-acclaimed vigilante pointed a torchlight to a girl's face and she asked why they flashed the light on her, surprisingly the boys went to the girl''s house and beat her up and dare whoever that will come for her rescue.
In fact, the activities of these so-called vigilante group has turned threatening to the society, I suggest some action to be taken before we become slave in our areas.
