Police Arrest Coxson Lucky, the Mastermind behind UNIPORT Killings



The Police in Rivers state have announced the arrest of the mastermind behind the killing of four students of University of Port Harcourt, Coxson Lerebori Lucky, aka Bright.

In a statement by the Inspector General of Police on Monday, Mr Lucky was described as the mastermind behind the lynching of the students. He was allegedly owing one of the students some amount of money and when they came to confront him, demanding for their money, he raised an alarm claiming they were robbers. This attracted some members of the vigilante group and later on, a mob which had the students killed.

Mr Lucky was declared wanted by the Nigerian Police on Monday for the brutal murder of  four students of the University of Port Harcourt – Ugonna Obuzor, 18, 200 Level Geology; Lloyd Toku, 19, 200 Level Civil Engineering; Tekena Elkanah, 20, a Diploma Technical student and Chiadika Biringa, 20, 200 Level Theatre Arts.

Although this brings some form of relief, it doesn’t bring the dead back to life. May their gentle souls Rest In Peace.

    Uhm. Am I the only one that feels like a LOT is being left out? It sounds HIGHLY unlikely — the circumstances described here– that that would have led to a mass murder.

    At least the families can feel some sense of Justice! Ð guy Àctually stood by and allowed people kill those kids!! Over money that I’m sure wasn’t anything! I don’t mean to sound crude, but may nemesis catch up with all of them!!

    How come his picture is not uploaded. The whole world saw the pics and videos of the deceased yet the Police can’t make public the picture of these animal. Nigerian Police doing what they know best- allowing a crime to happen, and then moving in when the deed has being done*

    This is bullshit! What happens to the police officers that where present at the crime scene before the murder, I will like Mr. IGP to tell us what he intends to do about them because they are incompetent ,donot deserve to wear the police uniform again and further more they should be purnished because they. Had all the opportunity to save those boys

    Kill this worthless piece of shit! Give him the same treatment those poor boys got! Him and the rest of that bloodthirsty mob who didn’t stop to ask a single question but rushed to judgement so they could engage in murder! Not a one of them needs to get away so that they’ll know from now on to let the police and the Nigerian courts deal with the dispensation of justice! But in this case let this worthless rag be dragged out into the streets, stripped butt naked, beaten within an inch of his life then set on fire! And those officers who allowed this deserve nothing less than life in prison too! The others death!
