Aluu 4: Nigerian students sack killer community

By News Express
Aluu, the community in Rivers State which last Friday morning murdered four off-campus students of the University of Port  Harcourt (UNIPORT), started reaping the backlash this evening.
Unable to bear the extra-judicial murder of their colleagues anymore, students from other institutions under the umbrella of the National  Association of Nigeria Students (NANS) this afternoon stormed UNIPORT  and roused local students into a protest during which at least 12 houses in Omuokiri-Aluu were set ablaze.
UNIPORT Vice Chancellor, Prof. Joseph Ajienka, was reportedly  attacked with sachets of water while trying to calm down the angry  students. He was rescued by securitymen, according to a breaking news by the Lagos-based Vanguard newspaper. UNIPORT authorities responded by closing down the school.
As previously reported by News Express and other media,  Llyod Toku, Chiadikobi Biringa, Tekena Elkanah and Ugonna Obuzor were  extra-judicially killed by Aluu community of Rivers State, South-South  Nigeria, where several UNIPORT students live in off-campus  accommodations. They were accused of stealing phone handsets and  laptops, an allegation that has yet to be proved.
The police have confirmed the arrest of 13 suspects in connection with the dastardly act that has outraged Nigerians.
The protesting students blocked the East – West road for several  hours before allegedly marching to Omuokiri-Aluu community to wreak  vengeance on the community. Security operatives have been drafted to  restrain the students from causing further damage.
Nigerians had expected President Goodluck Jonathan, an alumnus of  UNIPORT, to comment on the murder of the Aluu 4 (shown in photo) and  last week’s murder of several students of Federal Poly Mubi in the North East state of Adamawa but the Nigerian leader maintained a studied  silence on the issue.

    God deliver us from evil,be you a millitary or a civillan,Nigerians should have heart for humanity not take lives unecessarily.Instead of taking those young boys to the police station for infestigation,the 4 children were killed even worse than animals.What a wicked and heartless society!

    President Good luck Johnathan have not said anything in Aluu killing,i don’t think that Good luck Eberechukwu is capable of ruling this country.since he be come the president of Nigeria they have been a lot of killings. Abek Oga Goodluck step down because we have found out that you are a woman.

    If you can do any thing on this issue Aluu being Barbaric.

    Thanks Chief Elelia Nwa Ite 1.

    after watching the youtube I was move by compassion to Pray
    for evil to stop in our country.
    The devil is doing extra work God is looking for men and women.
    that can prevail in prayer in order to bring down the peace of God
    in our Nation.
