Port Harcourt 4: Police parade murder suspects  print

Published on October 16, 2012 by   ·   13 Comments

Nigeria’s Rivers Police Command has arrested 13 suspects in connection with the alleged killing of four students of the University of Port Harcourt, in Aluu community.

The suspects included 12 males aged between 20 years and 59 years and a female, Miss Lucky Orji.

Parading the suspects before journalists on Tuesday in Port Harcourt, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Muhammad Indabawa, said the nature of the crime prompted the parade.

“The gruesome manner in which the crime was committed coupled with the direct and glaring involvement of some of these suspects and the interest generated by the heinous crime left the police with no option than to parade them,“ he said.

Indabawa said that out of the number, two persons suspected to have participated actively in the killing were arrested on Oct. 15.

He said that the command was ready to fish out the perpetrators of the killing, adding that “no suspect will be spare out if arrested’’.

The commissioner urged the youths in the state to shun crime and work for the betterment of the state and country at large.

One of the suspects, Mr Louis Amadi, also known as Kapoon, said he was not involved in the killing, but only used belt to beat them.

Louis, who is an indigene of Ikwere in the Ikwere Local Government Area of the state, said the killing was regrettable to him.

Mr Segun Lawal, another suspect from Ogun, who is a taxi driver said he was not around when the incident happened.

Lawal described the killing as “outrageous and heartless“ and said that he had never killed somebody and had no intention of killing human beings.

The four students were killed in the Aluu community in Ikwere Local Government Area of the state on October 5, triggering national and international outrage.

    Heartless people. U guys allegedly killed 4 students bcos of a laptop and a cell phone belonging to someone else that is not even up to $1000. What will u do to Bankole among others that hv stolen millions from d public funds that belong to u and I?

  3. Commissioner, you paraded the killers of the 4 student, which is quite alright. What about those police men that were present but did nothing to save the lives of those innocent students? Are they going to be paraded too?

      Good question. The police men that were present should not be left out. As a matter of fact, they must be included as suspects because they don’t deserve to be called policemen. Our police force is an embarrassment to our nation.

    Many Nigeria people are heartless, what a shameless community, there is no doubt there is curse upon that community, especially their elders, even those that was enjoying watching them killing the innocent boys, some might not touch them but for them to support the killings with what they said, watching without stopping them is also a very big crime, If one of the boys happened to be military son, I believe by now the community ALLU might be history by now. What a CURSE COMMUNITY!!!

  5. Commissioner, you paraded the killers of the 4 student, which in all indication is quite alright. What about those 4 policemen that were present but did nothing to serve the lives of those innocent students? Are they ging to be paraded and prosecuted?

    TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

    MY NAME IS JOHNBULL. ONE OF MY COUSINS WAS AMONGST THE FOUR YOUNG MEN GRUESOMELY BURNT ALIVE IN ALUU.

    AS GOD IS MY WITNESS, I INTEND TO AVENGE HIS/THEIR DEATHS!

    WHAT HAPPENED TO THESE YOUNG MEN IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER THEY COMMITTED A CRIME OR NOT, IS BY EVERY HUMANE STANDARD, VERY DISTURBING AND BEYOND BELIEF.

    WHAT THESE ALUU PEOPLE DID TO THEIR FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS CLEARLY SUGGEST THAT THEY ARE A VERY SICK COMMUNITY.

    FROM THE VIDEO WE ALL WATCHED, NOT EVEN ONE PERSON RAISED A FINGER TO HELP THESE POOR BOYS.

    EVEN ANIMALS ARE NOT SLAUGHTERED THIS WAY.

    I HAVE ASSEMBLED A 30-MAN SQUAD TO GO INTO THE ALUU COMMUNITY AND MASSACARE EVERYONE IN SIGHT.

    I HAVE ALSO INSTRUCTED A SPECIAL TEAM TO FIND AND SHOOT THE VC OF UNIPORT FOR SUPPORTING THE BRUTAL KILLINGS OF THESE BOYS.

    I AM ONLY GIVING THIS ADVANCED WARNING TO THE VC OF UNIPORT, AND THE ALUU COMMUNITY, JUST TO TORMENT THEM, THE WAY THEY TORMENTED THESE 4 YOUNG MEN.

    I WILL ADVICE THE POLICE AND OTHER SECURITY OUTFITS TO PLEASE STAY OUT OF THE MATTER DURING THE OPERATIONS, THE WAY THEY MADE THEMSELVES UNAVALIABLE DURING THE MURDER.

    ANYONE WHO DELIBRATELY INTERFERS, WILL BECOME A LEGITIMATE TARGET BOTH DURING AND AFTER THE OPERATIONS.

    FOR THOSE WHO DOUBT THIS WARNING, PLEASE WAIT & SEE!!

    PLEASE DIRECT COMMENTS TO : johnbull4040@yahoo.com

    Seriously I don’t blame you Johnbull. You are vexed as is everyone else that has read or heard of this heinous act by these cold heartless animals. The only reason you may have to carryout this threat is because Baba ( Obasanjo) is no longer in power if not I trust he would have long taken action. But like I said he was in power. I believe the government is determined to do the right thing. Their killings should also be brutal and televised. Callous fools.
