Call me chicken, but I get goose bumps when I imagine how those 4 students from University of Port Harcourt (Uniport) were killed by those evil, heartless and daring people of the Aluu community.

It was brutal, I’ve seen the photos, I’ve read a few lines. I’ve seen the story evolve from ‘they were thieves’ to ‘they were cultists’ and on to ‘they were creditors’.
None of these justifies their killings, no truth can bring them back. I remember when Loveth, my cousin, showed me the photos on October 2nd, it was shocking, we couldn’t evne go through all the photos…and then somehow, on the night of October 5th, I hear there’s a video…How come?
Was a journalist there? Or just someone that was filled with pain and decided to take a video? Or perhaps someone who enjoyed the show just decided to save a copy for replay? Who took those videos? How extreme can this sadism go?
Its a world where people just have fun watching other people suffer… Small suffering, big suffering, its just another show for some people…they derive joy from it, a certain excitement, maybe even sexual.
Our society is distracted, should we say. Or the person who took the video had good intentions but couldn’t voice out his feelings…So he watched and took a video, as those fellow humans were being treated worse than animals. For goodness sake, we don’t even treat animals like that, whether we’re eating them or not.
I’ve tried to put myself in the shoes of whoever took that video, people are different. It’s good at least that we have the gruesome incidence documented…my inquisitive mind just wants to know how the video man felt, as he brought out his phone, or camera, or whatever filming device was employed. Do you think he sold the video to the journalists?? Would that be going too far?? I’m simply exploring all the possibilities in my mind.
The Voice of Nigerians all over the country strongly condemns the barbaric act and this unimaginable degree of jungle justice and illegal capital punishment.
May their souls rest in peace…May God judge the perpetrators of this gory and abominable act. Those boys meant different things to many people: son, brother, besto, mentor, leader, neighbour, crush, boyfriend, saviour…
Only God knows why he let this happen…*Story for another day*
