I came across the story of the brutal killing of the four University of Port Harcourt students on Linda Ikeji blog - Ugonna, Ilyod, Tekana and Chidiaka. The students were killed by the indigenes of Aluu community in Port Harcourt. The video is not only gruesome, it is unbelievable that people gathered round to watch and nobody tried stopping the killers. It is disheartening , I couldn't bring myself to finish watching the about 2 minutes video clip because it was barbaric. I couldn't help crying, I thought my heart was going to explode.
Why this jungle justice? Even if they had killed someone, they should have been handed over to the law enforcement agencies. All I have so far read is the stories of them stealing phones or being cultist, that's if the stories peddling around social media circles is true. I don't care what the true story is, no one deserves to die the way they were killed. They were young, full of life and most importantly have friends, family, loved ones who care and adore them.
This country has shed so much innocent blood it makes me sick. I feel the blood of the innocent is obviously crying out for vengeance, that's why Nigeria is in so much darkness, backwardness and languishing in untold hardship.
And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground. Gen 4:10
How come all the corrupt leaders, chieftains and elder statesmen who have stolen and are still stealing our collective wealth have never been meted with jungle justice. Why are the masses turning on one another?
I join other Nigerians to demand that Rivers State Government of Nigeria brings the perpetrators of this dastardly jungle justice to book.
We can't continue like this.
Ps....the video ...viewers discretion is advised, not for the faint hearted.
