The horrendous crime of taking the laws into their hand by lynching four male students of the University of Port Harcourt have been followed by outrage. Nigerians are calling for a quick investigation and arrest of identified members of the mob.
The sad thing is that witnesses who could have prevented the crime were filming it.
Thirteen persons, including the Chief of the Omokere Aluu community, in River State, have been arrested in connection with the killings of four students of the University of Port Harcourt, who were accused of stealing.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Rivers state, Mr. Ben Ugwuegbulam, who confirmed the arrest stated that some arrests were made in Aluu, adding that any person found not culpable would be released.
“The Rivers state police command is strongly opposed to such barbaric conduct, and has commenced diligent investigation into the matter,” he said.
He added that the video was forming part of the investigation.
However, below are screen shots from the murder video. We hope it would help the police in carrying out their investigations and bringing the culprits to justice.
