The police IG has confirmed what many have been saying since last week about the 4 students of Uniport who were murdered by an angry mob in the Aluu community in Port Harcourt.
In a statement, the IG Mohammed Abubakar said “Findings have revealed that the victims had gone to the area where they met their unfortunate death earlier that morning to demand for money allegedly owed them by Coxson Lelebori Lucky, alias ‘Bright’, who raised a false alarm that the victims were armed robbers.“
He also added that although Coxson has gone underground, detectives are on his trail. “Investigation is ongoing with efforts being intensified to track down others who are involved in the incident. Those who are found culpable shall be prosecuted.“
We’ve heard this version of the story before and now the IG has confirmed it.
It’s very sad that it had to end this way.
