The latest news reaching us is that the high court sitting in Port Harcourt this morning October 17th granted bail to four out of the twelve persons facing trial in the murder case of the four University of Port Harcourt, (Uniport) students. The four people that are freed from the Aluu-4 case are: Omoikiri Aluu monarch: Alhaji Welewa, Okoghiroh Endurance, Ozioma Abajuo and Chigozie Evans Samuel.
This people are free to go back to Aluu community, and wait, the Monarch should not have been set free? Is he not the one who organized or give the Authorization for the boys to be burnt?
The Presiding Judge, Justice Letan Nyordee granted them bail on grounds that their offense is not a capital offense and is bailable. They were granted bail to the tune of N2 million with two sureties and the court asked the sureties to submit their passports. The sureties must also have landed property in Port Harcourt and must show means of livelihood and evidence of paying tax for two years. The other eight suspects were refused bail due to the murder charges against them.
The court also admitted the photographs negatives and the Youtube CD of the incident tendered as exhibits in the matter.
We pray that Justice should be done to those young men… And i wonder why a case like this with videos, images and evidences would go on for ages.
May the soul of those kids continue to rest in Peace.
