Yesterday, News surfaced online about some UNIPORT students being mobbed after stealing Phones and laptops . The story went viral online on blogs platforms and social networks with so many comments from people.

According to an eyewitness:
The Students involved were cultists, 5 in number. They went to Attack someone, and on their way out, a girl saw them and screamed. This alerted people and they attacked the students. One of them escaped and the remaining 4 were caught with weapons and beaten by a man; hitting them mercilessly and bringing them to a slow and painful death..
The man later got fuel and poured it in their mouth and lit it, burning one student! The man was stopped with the arrival of the police so he couldn’t burn the rest. They were later taken to the mortuary where the families of the deceased came to claim the corpse…

The news about stealing of phones, laptops, e.t.c are all lies, probably in a bid to stall investigations.. since they said they were mobbed!!..

My questions about this eyewitness account are; does it mean it's one man responsible for beating these students to death and burning one of them? was the man at the scene when police arrived and if he was there why wasn't he arrested immediately? so all the bystanders and witnesses were just standing there, looking and recording on their phones while this horrendous act was being committed?

Here is another angle to the story tweeted by a friend to an eyewitness:

Tweeting with the handle @Penny_sugababe, Peniel who apparently stays in Port Harcourt, started by expressing her anger over the fact that many people attached sentiments in their reactions. She goes:

“Gosh! So because the criminals that were killed in PH today were cute, people are calling it injustice…Smh.. Nigerians sha”

She eventually recounted the story, as told by her friend.

“For people who need the real gist of what happened in UNIPORT, my friend was an eyewitness, nd she even has a part of the video on her fone. The people in Aluu community complained dey had been terrorized my robbers lately and it was almost a routine so dey set up a vigilante grp..

“At about 5am this morning, they got word dat dey were some robbers in d area and they made sure all the exits were blocked while dey waited. They were caught and dragged to d community head who told dem to confess and dey gave 3 different stories that didn’t even match. They were actually 5, one of them escaped! Dey got info about someone that had some money, it wasn’t laptops and phones please..

“Ugonna’s (the cutest) sister said she actually gave him money yesterday to go back home. PS: he’s an only son with 4 sisters..

“Anyways, people actually begged for their lives, but the community boys were bent on dealing with dem! These boys had machetes and axes sef. The community boys started beating then with dia own machetes and other weapons, until dey gave up! Police came afterwards for the bodies..

“Llyod (one of the criminals) father works with Radio rivers and even announced on air today that his son is “no thief” ...

“They chose a wrong path, and dey knew the end…… Did dey expect an angry mob to pat dem on dia backs and give then ice-cream? Oh please..

“Good night folks, pray for your loved ones, never to join a wrong crowd or be misguided. The fate of those boys…… It is well.”

According to this second account of the story, the students were beaten by the community boys (and not by a man, according to the first eyewitness). Well, whatever way it happened, THIS ISN'T RIGHT AND THE PERPETRATORS MUST BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE! I also think the bystanders did not act enough to make sure that these students weren't beaten to death...and burnt!



  1. @Penny_sugababe.....No body is a saint...we have all sinned against God one way or the other...These guys had axes and matchetes as u said.....which i am not doubdting cos i wasn't there ...since we saw there naked and brutalised pictures why didnt they show us the picture of the axes and matchetes? besides who da fuck is the vigilante to take human life...? If these gusy were caught in as robbers, then we have Police whose duty is to maintain internal peace....they should have been handed ova to the police for proper prosecution......this story u wrote here is cock and bull and it show u aint got human heart at all.....i dont support these dudes... but Vigilante has no fucking rights to take human life except i still suggest that FG sends police to arrest all those involved including the King of ALUU and let the vigilante show what gave them the right to lynch these guys without handing them oer to the police.....did the state govt promulgate and enact any law to that effect?

  2. Well the only person that can verify if the guys are thieves or cultists is the 5th person that escape and as for the story teller @Penny_sugababe that said “Gosh! So because the criminals that were killed in PH today were cute, people are calling it injustice…Smh.. Nigerians sha” well even if the guys are ugly they dont deserves wat they got remember what goes around comes around

  3. One of the four boys borrowed some huge amount of money to 1 Aluu boy who is his friend and for a time now d aluu boy has being trying to play smart(not to pay back) and on that faithful friday, d boy arrenge(uniport boy) with his other 3friends to surprise his debtor very early in d morning to ask of his money but unknown to him d animal had plans too, after some arguments d aluu boy called his fellows and started shouting that d uniport boys a cultist/thief, after much beating they swear that they must be killed so that d uniport boyz won't report to police or call other students on them, pls as u read this ask urself some simple questions like y did they insist d boyz must die b4 other student or police will hear, (2) listen very well to what was said in d video, painfully getting those aluu boys to me is as easy as ABC, aluu is a small place, let's start frm ppl living around d scene, d boy that was owning Him, etc dis hardworking boyz were very happy boyz whom were very popular in organising shows, we ve just lost our future celebrities,media youths, dis are boyz that travel abroad now tell me what's a laptop to them and where on earth is d laptop they stole????we won't sleep on dis, noooooo justice must prevail-----phina. Uniports students re rioting in Aluu,dats d evil community dat killed d youths And Gov Rotimi has arrested d chief of d community

  4. Do I really care if thoses guys were thieves? I say capital NO!!
    There is nothing that can justify that savagery.
    Their killers have more experience in whatever they were accused of.Shame to Lawless Country Called Nigeria!!

  5. Dt story z not true wtch d video lord itzzzzz ws a gory sight my God is not asleep I knw dt fr sure!

  6. No matter d degree of crime,such killing s nt worth it,for dos toking of injustice cs of being cute pray u neva fall a victim of circumstance

  7. @ penny ur jst a heartless fool...may GOD punish u for dis ur comment,put urself in deir place nd feel d pain,shameless human bein lik yhu....ur comment is so irritatin...GO TO HELL FOR ALL I CARE..fool

  8. Something just doesn't add up with the article. If the four students did have weapons how can one man beat all four of them?. Why the police didnt found any weapons or any stolen property?. Where is the evidence that the students were cultists?

  9. Penny fuck u burn in hell!!!!!!!
