PARENTS of the four students, who were clubbed to death at Omuokiri-Aluu last Friday, have called on Mohammed Abubakar, the Inspector-General of Police, IGP, to take over the investigation of the circumstances surrounding the brutal murder of their children.

They told newsmen in Port Harcourt, yesterday, that they had lost confidence in the ability of the Rivers State Police Command to handle the issue.

Speaking through their counsel, Mr. Peter Ndukwe, the parents said they gathered that three police patrol vehicles drove into the community at three different times while their children were being marched round by the “cheering mob in the community,” without bringing the situation under control.

They wondered why the police chose to deliberately abandon their responsibility at such a critical time, only to turn round to say they were now investigating the circumstances surrounding the killings.

The parents also said the police lied when they claimed that the suspected murderers had been charged to court in connection with the killings.

They said: “The IGP should take over investigation of the matter because we have lost confidence in the Rivers State Police Command.

“The police were there when they killed our children yet they did not stop the act. The claim that those arrested had been charged to court was mere propaganda.”

They said their children were not criminals, adding that nothing incriminating was found on them before the murder.

Three students of the University of Port Harcourt, Ugona Kelechi Obuzor, Biringa Chiadika Lordson and Mike Lloyd Toku; and their friend Tekena Erikena, were clubbed to death by irate youths in the community last Friday for allegedly stealing.

    It is a pity we life in a society that rewards crime, evil and wickedness. Militants are rewarded with a pat in the back in the name of amnesty; terrorist are pacified or worse ignored. Harden criminals roam the street while the innocent languish in prison. Corruption is celebrated as a way of life.
    What else can be expected from such a society? One thing is certain we cannot continue like this. The blood of Aluu4, Mubi 40 and all the casualties of the failed Nigerian system will continue to speak until change comes. All right thinking Nigerian should speak up through every medium possible; we should say no more avoidable deaths, enough of our young people dying in their prime. God have mercy on our Land. God bless Nigeria.

“The horrors that have been unfolding in our country have left me filled with sadness. I deeply commiserate with those who have lost their loved ones and as a father, I share the sentiment of my three daughters who protested in Lagos and London. As a young boy of 16, I participated in the ‘Ali Must Go Protest’ of 1978, so I understand the determination of our youths who rightly want our country to be better. We must all do our part to make Nigeria great! I will continue to do my own quota in providing for those who are most in need of support in our country in these tough times .…F.Ote💲”

Information Nigeria recalls a graphics designer identified as Oke, was killed hours after tweeting “Nigeria will not kill me” on Wednesday.

It was reported that the young man had passed away after he was hit by a stray bullet.

The deceased’s younger brother, Daniel has come out to clear the air regarding the circumstances leading to his death.

Daniel revealed his brother was stabbed on the neck by thugs who infiltrated and ransacked their home.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
