National Security Minister Edmund Dillon is advising citizens to use extreme caution when intervening in public altercations.

His comment comes in response to the incident earlier this week, which saw a mother of three, Kemba Olufemi, receiving an intense beating in front of Tropical Plaza in San Fernando at the hands of her husband, Lloyd Logan, who took his own life moments later.

Minister Dillon said according to the law, citizens have the right to intervene in public disturbances for the sake of stabilising the situation. However, he says citizens must make a judgment call to determine whether their own lives will be at risk.

Ms. Olufemi continues to receive medical attention at the San Fernando General Hospital at this time.
