UNIPORT 4: We Have Charged 11 Suspects To Court –Police 4 years ago 3

The Rivers State Police Command said on Monday that it had charged to court 11 out of the 13 persons, who were allegedly involved in the killings of four students of the University of Port Harcourt.


The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mohammed Ndabawa, made this known on Tuesday when the Executive Secretary of the National Human Rights Commission, Prof. Ben Angwe, visited the command in Port Harcourt.

Ndabawa, who was represented by the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Mr. Thomas Etomi, explained that the two remaining suspects, who had not been charged to court, would assist the police in their ongoing investigation.

He described the killings of the students by a mob as barbaric, maintaining that there was no justification for such action.

Ndabawa said that such display of wickedness would not be allowed to repeat itself, even as he promised to keep the NHRC abreast of the developments in the course of police investigation.

Earlier, Angwe told the state police commissioner that they were in the state to get information on the murder of the four students and added that the NHRC would visit the community where the incident took place.

Promising to visit and commiserate with parents of the deceased, Angwe said that the commission would stand by them to ensure that justice was done in the matter.

Angwe said that the NHRC had been getting calls from the international community on the killings of the undergraduates, even as he urged the students to be calm and not take laws into their hands. Home Page
