UNIPORT Students On Rampage In Aluu Community In Revenge For Students Killed



We have received reports that students of the University of Port Harcourt are attacking an area (Aluu) in Rivers State where four students were brutally murdered on Friday.

The students are reportedly on rampage, burning markets houses and attacking the community members some of who watched and filmed the horrendous killing of the students with their phones.
The community members took the laws into their hands to serve jungle justice, maybe they are been paid back with same coins.
Meanwhile the government of Rotimi Amaechi reports that some of the lynch mob and even village elders have been arrested.

    This is a sad, the merciless killing? Very sad, uncalled for, wicked, and unpardonable. There is no argument that the community of Aluu have placed a curse on their land and their generation spilling the blood of those youths in that manner. They need spiritual cleansing.
    However, the students of Uniport, where were you when this act was being carried out, cos all of a sudden u are, burning, fighting and revenging, I think they should have come out in their thousands at the right time before those guys were killed. If they did we may not have been in this mess.

    VEry sad.

    In a time where what we all need in this country is harmony and peaceful co-existence btw us,us Nigerians,are killing,to the extent of even burning our fellow citizens for stealing a. Laptop and a smartphone! Where is the justice? Where is the law? Where is the love?

    Its just a sign that the world is coming to an end. I’m just short of words. For humans to have d mind to do such to a fellow human, its Demonic operation not justice. But I know there’s always a prize for any act on earth, d Evil get evil rewards while d good gets good rewards. It might be delayed but surely it comes & goes around.

    Its quite that Nigeria is turning to a lawless country. How could a community do such a thing even if the stole car they did not have any right to take law to their hand. All of them that involved in this should be hand to serves as an example to others.

    The whole community should be wiped out of the map of nigeria and nobody should ever step feet on that land for I tell you this day the spirits of those boys will forever roam that land and an everlasting curse has been placed on that community which no amount of cleansing can remove. Rivers people are among the worst human beings on earth they are all cultist. Those boys were innocent!! Goodluck has been a curse to nigeria bcos during obasanjos time nobody can do this kind of stupid thing! I think its time for nigerians to claim their country back! Aluu community must be killed all of them! They are cannibals

    well, aluu deserves this. All students should pack out. Uniport students have been victims of such attacks from aluu people 4 so long. Aluu indigenes rob steal rape & extort now they have added murder to their crimes. Police & govt should get a life, they’re acting bc the innocent aluu4 come from prominent families who will sue all of them 2 the limit. Govt only cares that rivers state image has been tarnished. Tekena lloyd ugonna & aladdin cannot b brought back 2 life but their murderers & aluu should join them. Sorry those animals should b in hell not resting in peace lk the innocents they slaughtered.

    My question remains.where was the police when this barbaric act was carried out.All this incident took about an hour and the Nigerian police force who said their duty is to protect lives and property could not intervene. The level of insecurity in Nigeria is becoming alarming and every citizen may as well say their last prayer every morning,because you never know when the next terror may strike…All the elders in that community,the so called vigilantes should be arrested and government should make laws against jungle justice.We all wish for a better Nigeria,why we pray for the souls of these young men and let justice take its cause.

    this same manner of jungle juctice, burning of suppose criminals who maybe student or innocent happen in igboland everyday. Why are there so much silent over the igbo version? May be the Aluu pple were just imitating or coping what happen in other Nigerian cities. It is sad to see that the same hidious sin is appluaded somewhere and when committed somewhere else everyone seem to pick up their boldness to condemn. Rivers pple are not useless. Rivers are hospitable, that is why u like to live in port harcourt more than your own town. All forms of barbaric killing are bad, arm robbery on poor villagers is bad or worse.

    The protest is coming late. The henious malady by this canibal of a community done. No matter what the boys might have done, they don’t deserve what we all saw in the video shot. This goes to show the extent we as a nation have retrogessed. Human beings consisting of fathers, mothers, parent to be urging some criminals who took advantage of the situation to unleach the same thing they do to the community on the poor helpless boys need nothing but prayers as they have lost every sense of human milk. Where fellow students could not run out and ask for police or military help. I weep for ALLU , oh what have you done? You murdered sleep. How can you cleanse the blood of the innocent on your land? As a mother I weep for the mothers of these boys and I pray God will console you. The atrocity is greater than any war crime in this 21st century. The world will know that there exist a community named ALLU where all the inhabitants are ZOMBIES, CANNIBALS and BLOOD THIRSTY. May those involved be metted with the same kind of death and at the very spot where they carried out their show of shame. May their soul rest in peace if they ever found one.

    thieves or not, d elders were/are very foolish to av pamited n allowe d killing take place. Even If d story @emma is tru, d boys shud av been tortured n handed over 2d police, n d community shud av ensured d boys serve dia terms in jail. But now dia foolish decision surely, wud ida make dem fugitives4 life or sentence dem 2death. Elders r supoz 2 tink twice or more n act wisely.

    The news of the death of these precious souls kept me broken for days. Ugonna lives in my former neigbourhood and was @ my sister’s church 2wks back… There was no evidence whatsoever of the alleged laptop and phone, neither was there a proof in all the videos n pictures shared that showed that these precious souls where armed… Been a parent I can only imagine all the efforts put into the life of these innocent kids.. May God guide us all. ALUU shame on you and ur generations unborn. RIP Ugonna,Lloyd,Tekena and Chidiaka aka Aladdin.

    How sure are we that the phones and laptops they said they stole are not even their own personal belongings because everybody nowadays own a minumum of two phones, a laoptop, a tab or something for browsing the net.

    This was a setup jare. Man’s inhumanity against man. In Nigeria now, if you don’t like somebody’s face because of an argument you set him up and kill him. That’s where we’re going to. I even heard they came to collect money being owed one of them and got called thieves after an argument ensued.

    Rest in Peace, God bless your soul is not enough. That is not a consolation to the family. I don’t know what will console them because if it were plane crash or road accident at least it can happen. But a barbaric hitting of big sticks on the head and questioning whether they are still alive and burning them while all the while they were too weak to talk or protect themselves.

    They should hang the culprits.

  51. you are all guilty

    October 8, 2012 at 11:12 am

    I really blame those that av the time to film the incidence they derived pleasure in the killing of those lads, if not authourity shld av bn called. The students who were there, u are a disgrace to the entire studenthood. Aluu wldnt had gone so far, if only, if only a voice wld av bn raised to stop the act. I wonder their last thought, why were they created into inhuman world? Everybody there watching them, are all guilty of the murder.
    Gone are those days, when u don’t just tamper wit students cos they are students.
    May their poor tortured souls rest in peace.

    @keso: God must punish you, for that nonsense you wrote…
    @just saying: how do you know they snatched lives?, can you confirm that they raped girls?, or has any girl come forward and confirmed openly that she was raped by any of them? and talking about shooting for fun; do you recognize any of them as having shot someone you know?. Where is the laptop they stole? can the person who was being robbed before they were attacked by the ruthless, evil, God forsaken, never do well, shameless, envious, illiterate and barbaric people of Aluu, please come forward and prove that he’s items were stolen, where are the weapons they normally use to carry out their activities? Where you the one who initiated them into the supposed cult they belong to? If it were to be an indigene of the community, that such FALSE alarm was raised against, would they be as hasty to kill and set them ablaze… Having gone through hell in the hands of envious Aluu youths/ikwerre boys, I can tell you first hand, that we are not hearing the true and complete story. Please stop being irrational and act on what is on ground, the wickedness and inhumanity of Uniports host community to its staff and students, caught on tape…WHERE IS NANS, THE SUG OF UNIPORT, THE VICE CHANCELLOR OF THE UNIVERSITY, THE IKWERRE GOVERNOR OF THE STATE, THE NUC, and all other people who are supposed to be guaranteeing the lives, property and safety of students…I don’t know any of the boys personally, but my heart goes out to their families, I pray the good Lord to grant them the fortitude to bear this great and painful loss…may thier souls rest in perfect peace….Amen

  63. wipe out aluu from our map

    October 9, 2012 at 7:41 am

    May amadioha strike down dead all the indigenes of aluu community.

    @Kongson & Keso: stupid fools! It’s very sad we still have people like you that supports jungle justice, am sure both of you are from that CURSED village. Where are the evidence against these lads? You call them thieves, can any of you boast of never taken anything that deosn’t belong to you? I wish this same horrible act on your family then I’ll know if you’d have the guts to make those stupid comments of yours. For me every family from that village should pay with blood expecially the old fool that allowed the burning of lads that are age mates with his children or groundchildren.

    October 9, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    so this kind of barbaric act is still going on in this country. is unfortunate that humans kill their fellow human simply because they want to prove a point.shame upon shame because i believe that those who killed these guys are the perpetrators of the act. they just want to cover there evil deed. if you investigate there lives they have been killing human beings that was why they appointed them to those positions of vigilante (same with then bakasi in Anambra). I trust Obasanjo he would have wipe the whole community in just a night but what can poor Jonathan do, nothing cos he is helpless. and who is blaming the students for going on rampage, pls pls pls they should do more than that. the king of that community should also be killed.

    October 9, 2012 at 8:08 pm

    The question is what government doing about it? Cos what we are talking about here is life some community need not to be.


    October 10, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    But to say the fact this village people do too much, you know this is not suppose to be happening government must do something about it because Nigeria is not a small country where such thing will be happening

    in as much as i strongly condem the inhuman treatment meted on this young students..they shouldnt hav taken the law into their hands..those students should hav been beaten and handed over to the relevant authorities. However, the people of Aluu actd out of proportation no matter the level of the anger. A couple of weeks to the 4 killings, some set of group entered a man’s house, slaughtered his wife and raped his daughter in front of him. therehas been several killings of people in Aluu, banks being robbed, police officers killed over and over again. the people felt so bad and over reacted however which i strongly object. but let me ask you…how would you feel in robbers entered your house, killed a nursing mother beat the man and rape a young girl of 14 yrs. are we sure that the blood of the innocent people of ALUU is not speaking against this boys? how will God harden people’s heart followin and watchin no one comin to their aid. i may not be makin sense but only God can judge

    Inhuman is not enough for me to express my feelings, this was un called for. Only God knew what they were thinking when they carried out the act of burning four students. As for me, the boy who implecate them should equally join them where ever they are and the same way they had all died so he will feel the same pain.

The potential for iGaming in Nigeria uncovered



There is a growing positivity surrounding the Nigerian iGaming industry. As the nation breathes a collective sigh of relief following the announcement of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), it’s hoped that many burgeoning industries such as the world of iGaming can be allowed to flourish and bring much-needed tax revenues to the country.

Many analysts within the iGaming industry believe Nigeria has the potential to become Africa’s iGaming hub. Its domestic market is already forecast to be worth $2 billion, due largely to sports betting and the fascination with Nigerian soccer stars overseas like Odion Ighalo at Manchester United. Meanwhile, the domestic penetration of smartphones is also recognised, with some 83% of the population now owning a mobile device.

Nigeria was also a major focal point during this year’s SBC Digital Summit Africa, which was understandably conducted virtually earlier this month. Ahead of the summit, experts enrolled in the event were asked to vote on which African country offered the best foundations for iGaming operators to thrive. Nigeria outperformed every other nation, with 31% of all votes labelling Nigeria as the country with the highest potential to make a real
success of its domestic iGaming sector.

Even South Africa, which has a well-established domestic iGaming market, ranked second with just 28% of the vote. Prospective Nigerian iGaming operators should certainly take a leaf out of the book of South African iGaming brands, many of which have cultivated a strong customer base through the use of incentives and sign-up bonuses. The vast majority of offers available at platforms like, direct gamers to the safest and most reputable

One of the main reasons that industry experts believe in Nigeria’s iGaming potential is that it already boasts an engaged target demographic. Many of its young adults are already betting on sports like soccer and boxing, and there is a feeling that introducing them to casino gaming verticals would not be too difficult a stretch. Marry that with a growing number of smartphone users, which is predicted to reach over 140 million people by 2025, and you can
see the potential for iGaming apps and web applications to provide immersive, secure gaming
on the go.

Presently, the country has three separate bodies responsible for licensing online betting activities – the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC), the Special Control Unit against Money Laundering (SCUML) and the National Office for Technology Acquisition and Promotion (NOTAP). At the time of writing, online betting at a domestic Nigerian site is strictly prohibited by law. Loopholes regarding offshore operators make it possible for
Nigerians to play elsewhere, but it seems somewhat short-sighted for the Nigerian government to steer clear of creating its own regulated, revenue-making iGaming industry.

In a nation of substantial population, supporters of developing a domestic iGaming industry in Nigeria believe that the most would be a positive step, creating new career opportunities for everyday people. This could be in customer support, game development or any other facet of an iGaming operator. All the while, generating tax revenues for the Nigerian government and helping to breathe new life into the domestic economy.

There is a general feeling that Nigeria’s gaming industries tend to follow the same path as South Africa’s. The SBC Digital Summit Africa revealed that there has been a “seismic shift” from sports betting markets to casino games in the last eight months, including live dealer tables, that’s according to Sean Coleman, CEO of the South Africa Bookmakers Association.

Live dealer games seemingly “appeal to millennials” across South Africa. Dean Finder, CEO of Evolution Services SA believes the fact that live dealer games are “not gender biased” is an opportunity to reach out to female players, which are an often “unserved market” across Africa.

For these trends to follow suit in Nigeria, operators will need to build further trust in their
games and regulatory measures to curry favour with the country’s legislature.
