PLAINTIFFS in the court case over murder of four University of Port Harcourt students in Aluu, Rivers State have withdrawn and presented fresh charges against suspects on trial over the incident.

A High Court presided over by Justice L.L Nyordee in Port Harcourt sitting over the matter granted the leave to substitute the charges following Prosecution’s request after adding one more suspect to the 11 earlier on trial.

Thursday’s hearing also advanced the trial to the reading of the reviewed charges to the current 12 suspects who all pleaded not guilty.

The suspects are being charged with murder and negligence/refusal to prevent felony.

Counsel to the 9th Defendant and former Chairman of Nigeria Bar Association, O.C.J. Okocha (SAN) had argued that the Prosecution, under any law, has no liberty to withdraw and substitute original charges.

The Prosecution led by Solicitor General of Rivers, Rufus Godwin, had appealed for the substitution on the strength of the addition of one more suspect to the case.

Deciding on the argument, Justice Nyordee eventually granted the leave of substitution of charges.

Justice Nyordee subsequently adjourned the case to 15th August when consideration for bail for the suspects would be the first issue to be determined in the continuing case.

Four UNIPORT’s students, Binnga Lordson of Theartre Arts, Ugonna Obuzor (Geology), Mike Toku (Civil Engineering) and Tekena Erikene were murdered by an out of control mob October 5th 2012 in Aluu, Ikwerre local government area.

Judging by national & international outcry that followed the murder of these boys, I assumed that the National Assembly would have made a very deterrent law as regards this barbaric way of life(jungle justice), but with latest public lynching of another group of students in Badagry this week, it's then obvious that our law makers who re highest paid in the world re only there for their pockets. Tell me how boko haram no go dey?
