Aluu Residents Flee To Avoid Random Arrests And Reprisal Attacks Over Gruesome Killing Of UNIPORT Students

There are unconfirmed reports that several students of the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) earlier on Sunday staged a protest to the the Aluu Community to express their displeasure over the killing of four students of the institution on Friday.

Reports say the students killed lived in an off- campus hostel located in the community. The students named Ugonna, Lloyd, Tekana and Chidiaka were initially accused of stealing laptops and phones later unconfirmed reports emerged claiming the students were cult boys.
They were stripped naked publicly, severely beaten by a mob and burnt to death using car tyres.

Many observers have condemned the extrajudicial killing of the four students arguing that they should have been handed over to the police for prosecution.

Meanwhile, the Rivers Police Public Relations officer (PPRO), DSP Ben Ugwuegbulam, confirmed that four individuals were killed on Friday at Aluu for allegedly stealing, but could not ascertain if the victims were students of UNIPORT or not.

He stated that the police command was already investigating the incident. He urged students and residents not to take the law into their hands assuring that the police will do all it can to bring the perpetrators to book.

Reports say residents of the community have started fleeing to avoid indiscriminate arrest by policemen.

The deputy registrar of the school, Williams Wodi, said, “Right now, I am not in a position to confirm to you that the alleged victims are bona fide students of UNIPORT, as is being widely speculated.

“The alleged incident took place at Aluu village, about two kilometres outside our main campus. We do not have responsibility for security in Aluu communities, which are beyond our jurisdiction. The relevant security outfits are working with our security department to establish the true identities of the victims and what actually transpired on the day of the reported incident.

“The Dean of Student Affairs (of UNIPORT) is also working round the clock to establish their identities as students of UNIPORT. The university will certainly issue a statement once
preliminary facts are laid on the table.”

Now I'm wondering why it would take the university 3days to address the matter and still not been able to verify the Identity of the students in question, this has further gone to show that the Education system in Nigeria is messed up and not responsive.

Where's the Federal Government, State Government, Civil Organisations, Human Right Activist? This is the time to stand up to wanton killing of the Nigerian Youth.

If we don't do anything now because they are not our relations we shouldn't forget that tomorrow it could be us.
