An indigene of Aluu (a little community) owed Ugo Some Money and had vowed not to pay Back. Ugo who was popularly known as Tipsy had gone to meet with a fearless university guy [name withheld] To help them track the debtor who had been on the run.
‘Mr Fearless guy’ [A Cultist] who was feared by many in the school and Accepted to accompany his friends to get the debtor tracked down in exchange for a percentage of the debt.
They were joined by their room-Mate, Chidiaka. On their way to the place, they met one of their friends, Tekena, who knew nothing about the plan, and he joined, just for the hype as in normal with young boys of juvenile age.

Kayode Salako, Others Condemn The Killing Of UniPort Students…Lampoon Government
“I’m deeply disturbed! The other day Cynthia was killed and people said foolish things like “yes, it serves her right, how could she go to meet men she never knew?” So does that justify her ruthless killing?
Few days ago, 4 UniPort students alleged of stealing, were killed gruesomely like they were never humans because of some unproved allegations. How?! How did we become like this? Then they were set ablaze after the torture? Just as they said in Cynthia’s case, ” it serves them right!”. To the people applauding this uncivilised and barbaric act: Did you see them steal the phones or do you know anyone they robbed?! Were these boys caught with weapons or harming anybody?
These boys may have just been victims of bias and miscalculated or misinterpreted perceptions. I am truly disturbed. We just killed 4 potential future leaders like that, while the real thieves (the economic saboteurs, the enemies of Nigerians) walk the corridors of power with impunity, flexing their lean muscles over our frustration.
Where is Farouk Lawal and co.? Where are the nation’s oil thieves? Where is Bode George and the many political armed ‘robbers’? Where is Lucky Igbinedion? Where are all these people? Do they have tyres around their necks by now?! I am truly disturbed and my heart bleeds.
The most painful aspect of all these barbaric tendencies is that today, you see worship centres on every street in Nigeria-Churches,mosques,shrines everywhere, yet wickedness ravages the land. Where are the items these boys stole? Who are the victims?!
We call on the IGP and the President of Nigeria to avenge for the souls of these young Nigerians, who were brutally murdered, to prove to Nigerians that our country is not a JUNGLE as some of us have grown up to believe. No wonder the bible says ‘ the heart of man is desperately and terribly wicked! What type of a country is this?!
God help Nigeria, God help our youths!” Said by Kayode Salako, President CANN and Fasholamanian.
At least 12 houses have been set ablaze at Omuokiri-Aluu by angry Nigerian students who descended the small village in their hundreds protesting the violent murder of four students. UNIPORT students were mobilized by students of other universities under the umbrella of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS. The students blocked major roads in Port Harcourt before moving to Aluu but fortunately for the indigenes, they were all gone before the students got there. I saw it on TV, the whole village was deserted, not even goats or chickens were seen anywhere. So they value their own lives?
Meanwhile, the spokesman of the school revealed this evening that the university has been shut down indefinitely.
TO THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT, RIVERS STATE GOVERNMENT AND ITS SECURITY AGENCIES IN AND AROUND RIVERS STATE. TO LEAVE UNARRESTED AND UNPUNISHED THE PERPETRATORS OF THIS ACT WILL CERTAINLY BE ONE MORE DEATH/DECAY/DEGENERATION OF OUR SOCIETY AND COUNTRY.
NOTHING LESS THAN AND OPEN TRAIL IN A COURT OF LAW AND WITH ENOUGH PUBLICITY FOR EVERY NIGERIAN TO HEAR AND SEE THAT JUSTICE LIES IN THE HAND OF THE LAW/GOVERNMENT AND NOT THE SELF APPOINTED JUDGE AND EXECUTIONERS VIGILANTE AND MEMBERS OF ALLU COMMUNITY IN RIVERS STATE, THAT CARRIED OUT THIS MOST HORRENDOUS ACT.
GOVERNOR AMECHI,PRESIDENT GOODLUCK, IGP,SSS, THE JUDICIARY AND THE NIGERIAN PRESS. WE WAIT TO SEE HOW THIS STORY TURNS OUT, MAYBE THIS WILL HELP SHOW THAT EVERY SANE SOCIETY HAS RULES WHICH MUST BE OBEYED,NO ONE TAKES LAWS IN THEIR OWN HANDS EXCEPT IN A LAWLESS SOCIETY…
MAY THE SOULS OF THE LOST ONES OF THIS MOST UNFORTUNATE INCIDENT REST PEACEFULLY.
