D’banj, P’Square, M.I, others condemn Aluu, Mubi killings

The celebrities disapprove of the brutal murder of the young men in Port Harcourt and the killing of the Mubi students

Nigerian celebrities have joined the teeming number of Nigerians expressing displeasure over the killing of four undergraduates of the University of Port-Harcourt, Llyod Michael, Ugonna Ibuzor, Tekena Elkanah and Chidiaka Biringa, in Aluu community.

Two of them, Llyod and Ugonna were aspiring entertainers who had won rap competitions and were about to release a mix tape. They also had a single titled Heart of the City ft Yetty.

Chocolate City rapper, M.I, who was knighted as the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime Goodwill Ambassador on Smuggling of Migrants, on Tuesday in Abuja said, “The society is a mirror of each of us. It is sad and sickening that this was allowed to happen. It shows us all what we are capable of, what we will each do given the right set of circumstances. These four murdered men, their deaths should not be in vain. If anything good could come out of a mess so sordid, let it be that every Nigerian begins to think about the problem and what to do to solve it. Let it be that we understand the problem is ourselves and our failure to take a stand against injustice and lawlessness over the years. Let it be that we promise ourselves never to let this happen again. Not on our land. Not as long as we are alive.”

One of the PSquare twin, Peter also tweeted saying, “I totally condemn the killing of the UNIPORT students! No matter the story, We are governed by laws, justice must prevail. I just saw the video….OMG!Who knows how many they have been killing? #justiceforallu4.”

Another tweet, by Uti Nwachukwu read, “Where are the remaining killers!!!The whole village should be arrested for aiding and abetting!#Justice4aluu4 .”

Waje said, “I pray for the youths of this country, I pray that the wrath of God won’t come upon us for d barbaric things we do. May their souls rest in peace, may God comfort their parents and heal their heart #Aluu4.”

Also, excerpts from a message released on Tuesday by DB/Good Music/Mercury/IDJ artiste, D’banj, who is also a United Nations Youth Ambassador for Peace, read, “To express the depth of my pain and shock at their murder is impossible. And understanding how events could have degenerated to this level is truthfully beyond me. I mourn deeply with the families of these young men because this is our collective loss. They were our colleagues, our classmates, our neighbors, our brothers…our friends. We are not a nation of barbarians. We can follow due processes and procedures. We must fight together as one nation to ensure that Justice as whole is served, and as a process, is duly followed – always. Aluu 4 and Mubi 40, Rest In Perfect Peace.”

    Although, Coxson has gone underground, Detectives are on his trail,” Mr. Abubakar said…..I thought d police said coxson has been arrested.why are they nw saying he has done underground n theit detectives are on his trail? The police should b held responsible for the murder of aluu 4 as they just stood and watched the henious act perpetrated. Police are agile to disperse a peaceful demonstration with teargas but can’t disperse an angry mob with d same teargas but ll come out n say an untrained civilian mob can outclass a trained force. Shame on the police force. Its because of acts like this that the public don’t have faith in the police and report crime but would rather take d law into their own hands as d police can’t uphold d law anymore. If am asked,I ll say d police killed d aluu 4 because their presence on the scene n yet did nothing fuelled their yearning to carry out jungle justice on those poor innocent kids.
