Four young University of Port Harcourt students (all in their early 20s) were yesterday tortured and burnt alive by indigenes of Aluu community, in Rivers State in hazy circumstances.
According to accounts, five students went to the community to carry some sort of cult activity when they were accosted and arrested at around 5.30am by vigilante group in the community that has a recent history of armed robberies.
One of the five escaped, while the four others were taken before the community leaders who passed judgment on them, after which they were tortured and burnt to death.
These guys-identified as Ugonna, Chidiaka and Llyod-are said to be 200 level students of UniPort who went to steal in the community in the wee hours of the morning, but met their water loo when somehow, the members of the community alerted each and were able to apprehend them before they could escape.
It is reported that during the operation, a villager was shot, and this further angered members of the community leading to the eventual untimely death of the alleged robbers.
The alleged robbers after they were caught, were beaten-as depicted in the picture above-then set ablaze, before the police could intervene.
At this point, I must say,that the idea of jungle justice is completely wrong and unacceptable. Many people have been victims from mistaken identity, and their lives wasted for no reason.
Even more sad is the fact that people were watching while these guys were beaten to death. Why not just apprehend them and hand them over to the appropriate authorities???A lot of Nigerian sure need re-orientation.
We contacted a student who witnessed the whole act and he gave us Full details about what happened. According to him, The Students involved are Cultists, They went to Attack Someone, they were about 5 in number, , so on their way out, A girl saw them and screamed, these alerted people and they attacked them.. One of them escaped and the remaining 4 were caught with Weapons and beaten by a man [Though they were already helpless and weak after being attacked by the crowd] , Hitting them Mercilessly and bringing them to a slow and painful death.. The man later Got Fuel and poured it in their mouth and lit it., Burning one student!, The man was stopped with the arrival of the police so he couldn’t burn the rest, they were later taken to the mortuary where the families of the deceased Came to claim the corpse…
The news about Stealing of Phones, Laptops, e.t.c are all Lies, probably in a bid to Stall Investigations.. Since they said they were mobbed!!..
The name of the Students are Ugonna, Ilyod, Tekana and Chidiaka
