Llyod Toku Mike,one of the four University of Port Harcourt students lynched by the Umuokiri-Aluu community on October 6, was today laid to rest with the bereaved parents crying for justice and immortalisation of the murdered son.

In a ceremony laden with emotions, Toku Mike’s father and the mother told P.M.NEWS at the Township Stadium in the old Port Harcourt, that the only thing that could assuage them is that “justice should not only be done,but must be seen to be done”.

Toku Mike’s mother expressed what she called “inner joy that the evil labels of being thieves and cultists put around her son and his friends were cleared by the Inspector-General of Police,Mohammad Abubakar,who exonerated the innocent persons murdered when they went to recover debt from somebody who promised one of them accommodation,but wickedly raised alarm alleging they were thieves.”

Toku’s father said he still feels the late Lloyd around the house.”I still remember him holding his mother by her shoulders assuring her that the future would be bright for the family by the time he finishes his University education and make inroads into his musical career. All that dreams have been brought to an abrupt end.”

Toku Mike commended the Police on the arrest of suspects in the killing of the ALUU 4. He however added that more suspects are still at large.

On his impression of the Omuokiri-Aluu Community,he said:

“I strongly advice parents and students of UNIPORT not to live in that community because they don’t value human lives”

Mr Victor Burubo,the National Publicity Secretary,who Spoke on behalf of the Ijaw National Congress,INC, the umbrella body of all the Ijaw people,including Okrika War Canoe house,where Toku Mike hailed from,said they are saddened by the death of two of their sons,Lloyd and Tamuno-Itekenasam Elkanah. He however said the community would not embark on a blind revenge.

Mr.Onyema Baringa, the father of Chiadika Lordson Baringa,one of the UNIPORT four student also murdered said that the

Parents are shocked that none of the representatives of the Ikwerre local Government where the incident happened, State and

Federal Government came to condole them to date.

“It is sad.Their coming to condole us will not bring back our sons,but I thought they could show concern”.

He called for the University authorities to immortalise the slain students.

Tombara Mike Yalah,the National President,Niger Delta Students Union Government from the Rivers State College of Arts and Science,RIVCAS,called for the immediate release of fellow students languishing in jail in various Police Cells for protesting against the killing of their colleagues.

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!”
