Linda Ikeji, a popular Nigerian blogger and movie producer, has finished her first official film, “Dark October,” which is about the infamous “Aluu four boys” incident that occurred in Port-Harcourt in 2012.
Linda Ikeji Studios shot the film, which was directed by Toka Mcbaror.
Toka announced the upcoming project on his verified Instagram account, writing, “5th of October, 2012… We will never forget!!!”
The Aluu Four lynching involved four young men from the University of Port Harcourt, Ugoing to Obuzor, Toku Lloyd, Chiadika Biringa, and Tekena Elkanah, in a necklace lynching.
According to press reports, the students went to the Omuokiri Aluu community in search of a debtor to one of them when the debtor (who is still at large) allegedly raised an alarm and accused them of taking his laptop and other belongings.
An outraged crowd rushed down on the pupils and savagely battered them without properly interrogating them. According to the popular video clips, they were marched through different parts of the neighborhood before being set ablaze.
Linda Ikeji’s film ‘Dark October’ is about the lynching of the ALUU four.
