The Real Story Behind The Aluu 4

On October 5, 2012, a barbaric incident happened in Aluu, a community in Obio-Akpor LGA of Rivers state – four students of the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) were stripped naked, beaten and lynched over an alleged robbery incident. The incident was another sad tale of Nigeria’s trend of jungle justice. 

The deceased students were:

Ugonna Obuzor (18 years old)
Lloyd Toku (19 years old)
Chiadika Biringa (20 Years Old)
Tekena Elkanah (20 Years Old)

The 4 University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) students had visited the Aluu community in Rivers State on the day the incident happened in search of a debtor who owed one of them. The debtor had raised an alarm that the students were robbers who came to steal his valuables.

As soon as the debtor raised the alarm, a mob pounced on the four students, paraded them on the street as thieves, and flogged them mercilessly before setting them ablaze – in what is referred to as a “mock trial”.

The Rivers state police command arrested some suspects over their involvement in the lynching of the four students.

After five years of trial, on July 31, 2017, a federal high court in Rivers found three persons guilty of the murder of the four students.

Ledan Nyordee, the judge, sentenced those found guilty to death.

They are Lucky Orji, a police sergeant; Ikechukwu Amadi and David Obada.

Four others who have been standing trial since 2012 were discharged and acquitted.

Dark October Movie Controversy
Dark October, the movie about Aluu 4 lynching executive produced by Linda Ikeji is now surrounded by controversy.

Dark October: Parents Of Slain ALUU-4 Urge Linda Ikeji, Netflix To Retract Movie 

Parents of the four students of the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) lynched in Aluu Community, in 2012, codenamed, Aluu-4, have urged Linda Ikeji and Netflix to suspend the planned premiere of their new movie titled ‘Dark October’ which centres around the murder of their four children.

The families through a rights group, The Integrity Friends for Truth and Peace
The initiative, TIFPI said Linda Ikeji made the movie about their late children without consulting them.

TIFPI, however, in a statement in Port Harcourt yesterday, the Executive Director of the body, Livingstone Wechie, said the movie that was produced without the consent of the four families has reawakened the already doused trauma caused by the tragic killing of their children.

“The attention of the four bereaved families of the ill-fated Aluu 4 incident have been drawn to a widely advertised movie titled “Dark October” which was produced by a known blogger by the name Linda Ikeji as stated therein.

“For the records and sadly so, Linda Ikeji produced the movie without seeking the consent of the affected families and parents of the unforgettable Aluu 4 victims.

“The question to Linda Ikeji is: Can you cry more than the bereaved or do you not have some conscience and humanity in you as a parent that you have become?”

"I have been instructed in writing through my organisation The Integrity Friends for Truth and Peace Initiative TIFPI by the four affected families, that is the parents of late Lloyd Toku-Mike, Chiadika Biringa, Ugonna Obuzor and Tekena Elkanah to represent them and ensure that justice is done in this matter.

“This is to the effect that Linda Ikeji acted both of her own volition and on a frolic of her own as she failed, refused and neglected to seek the consent of the affected and families/parents of these boys whose names and the story of the Aluu 4 incident form the entire essence of the said movie......."
