Two years after the death of four students of the University of Port Harcourt popularly called Aluu4, Court has finally delivered judgement.
A Rivers State High Court, has sentenced to death three persons in connection to the lynching of 4 students in Aluu Community in 2012.
Those sentenced to death include, ex-Sergeant Lucky Orji, Ikechukwu Luis Amadi and David Chinasa Ogbonda.
The Court presided over by Justice Nyordee has also discharged and acquitted the remaining 4.
Justice Nyordee in his Judgment blamed the accused persons for embarking on mob action without having the facts about the action of the students.
The Judge said the death of the four children was a culmination of the shameful failure of security institutions especially in the area of intelligence sharing, adding that the Police, the C4i and the Joint Military Task Force failed in their responsibilities.
“You are found guilty in line with Section 319 of the Criminal Code cap 9. of the Laws of Rivers state.”
According to the Judge, the prosecution failed to prove it’s case of murder against the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th accused persons beyond every reasonable doubt.
