I am a BB/Fb blogger, I try to tie the knots, and information flows faster than usual especially bad news in these days
From a Fb contact on her timeline: feeling so bad….. Concerning d four uniport students killed yesterday.. One of dem is aa friend sister’s son. I heard they went to their rooms, carried them beat them up badly, gave dem acid to drink b4 setting dem ablaze…. I heard they over power d olopa dat came there… Oh God… Still trying to absorb d shock… What a sad way to die….
Then some one asked: did d guys realy steal phn nd laptopz?
And she replied: my dear…. Cant say oh.. I heard dey didnt allow dem to defend demselves… But d guy i know parents r wealthy.. I even heard dat their bodies are still in mortuary.. D fada of ugonna is fighting hard for justice.. I pray God grants him his plight.
Another friend of mine that watched the video had this to say: It cuts, watching the video of those 4 children been beaten to death…I wonder what went on in the mind of the man that kept desecrating their bodies. Who is without sin? Self righteous indignation? Or just because they were students and so fell from the sky.How do they even sleep?
That was yesterday 06/10/12
Today 07/10/12 I got various broadcasts on bb proclaiming to be the true story
TRUTH ABOUT UNIPORT MASSACRE
The 4 boys alleged to be thieves are not actually THIEVES but Cultists. They were on their way to harrass and beat up their Point One in the cult, who has already alerted the vigilantes in the area (Aluu community) that some armed robbers were coming, instead of the truth that he was to be attacked by his cult members… On seeing them, a girl screamed and alerted the vigilantes who arrested, stripped, beat the boys to the point of death and later burnt them. The police came later to claim the bodies.
Governor Rotimi amaechi has ordered the arrest of the people involved in the killing!
Then another broadcast countering the former
#Uniport4…..This is the real story: Ugonna has been complaining to his father that his house in school was being invaded all the time by robbers so he doesn’t sleep there. He had a friend in the community that he spends the night with. Himself and his roommate were coming back from where they went to spend the night when they met their other friends Chiadika and Lloyd so they decided to go together. On their way, Lloyd said that he needed to collect his money from someone who was owing him. In the cause of collecting his money, the whole situation went bizzare and turned into a fight. The guy who was owing them started screaming and the vigilante group was alerted and they thought they were the criminals disturbing the community since they were more in number than the guy they went to collect their money from. that’s the real story, no laptops or phone or cultism involved. Those guys were homely and they were all christains. Also their parents are very comfortable and provides them with everything they needed. Lord have mercy on us.
Which is true?
But one thing is clear, even if they were the worst of people, killing them without them being heard or able to defend themselves in a law court, even a village square meeting,Or disciplinary commitee is so wrong, people are innocent till proving guilty
And even if found guilty the death penality is still up for debate.
Below as comments are two video links I got but I have not watched, only the pics give me the chill not a fan of gore, would update as soon as I get more info, I also hear the video made its way to CNN, this will further damage our reputation as an unsafe place to live, where people have more trust in taking laws into their hands than the proper authority.
