Revealed: Why ‘Aluu 4′ Were Brutally Murdered



A new account of how four University of Port Harcourt undergraduates popularly known as Aluu 4 were murdered in cold blood has just been made public.

Details from 247 news Update, which has just released an account of what happened on that fateful day {Friday, 5th October, 2012) is one members of the community in which the young men were killed will forever regret.


The account states that an indigene of Aluu was indebted to Ugo, one of the Aluu 4 and rather than pay up, vowed not to. Ugo who was popularly known as Tipsy, had solicited the help of a well dreaded guy on campus to assist him in recovering his money from his debtor.

This guy, referred henceforth to as ‘Fearless’, was a renowned cultist and accepted to help retrieve the debt owed in exchange for a ‘cut.’

Ugo and Lloyd were close cousins and so they were together on the plan to retrieve the debt owed. On that day, as they made to leave, Chidiaka, their room mate, joined the train. On their way to the place, they met one of their friend, Tekena, who joined them without question as to their mission; not an uncommon behaviour among boys of that age who are friends – a victory for one, is a victory for all.

That made 5 boys who embarked on that unfortunate journey – Ugo, Lloyd, Chidiaka, Tekena and the ‘Fearless’ guy. Unknown to the other four, the ‘Fearless’ guy who was contracted to intimidate the debtor into paying his debts, was armed with a gun.

Eventually they got to the debtor’s house around 12 midnight and a shouting match ensued when the debtor still insisted on not paying. A woman who lived next door, heard the heightened voices, thought they were thieves in the middle of an operation, raised the alarm. As her cries of ‘thief’, ‘thief’, rent the air, other young men around the neighbourhood came to the scene – turns out most of them were rival cult members to the ‘Fearless’ guy contracted by Ugo to help him retrieve his debt.

They immediately took advantage of the situation by tipping the vigilante group in the community who in turn confronted the boys, referring to them as thieves. This led to their beating even as they tried to prove their innocence and explain their mission. It was in the process that the fifth boy, ‘Fearless, brought out his gun in a bid to scare the people around him thereby creating an opening for him to escape leaving the rest four in the evil hands of the community.

More resolved than ever before that the four boys were actually thieves despite their pleas and explanation to the contrary, the mob gathered around and beat them to a state of submission and unconsciousness before they were unfortunately lynched!
