Good Or Bad? Idumota Based Producer Making Aluu4 Movie

If reports making the rounds is true, that a movie on the unfortunate incident of Friday, October 5, 2012 in Omoikiri community of Aluu, Rivers state is in production, then something is fundamentally wrong with our reasoning.

For one, it is improper to take advantage of an incident whose memory is still fresh in our minds, to cash in. It smacks of fraud and is an insult on the sensibilities of the families whose children were brutally killed by that Aluu mob.

Secondly, it is possible that the movie producers did not sought the consent of the victims’ families nor did they visit the community where the gruesome murders took place to get a graphic and factual report of what transpired.

Finally, the intent and purpose of the producers (Simony Productions) of this movie is unknown. Is it to present an actual perspective of what happened on that black Friday or is it just based on heresay and what was reported over the internet? Or is it just another movie that will reopen sore wounds instead of giving closure to the bereaved families of Aluu4?

Whatever the intent is, it leaves a sore taste in the mouth. We will keep our fingers crossed to see what the Idumota-based producers, who brought nollywood movie viewers, ‘Blackberry Babes,’ have to offer on this one.


  1. Before we start casting stones and judging the producers,we have to knw d aim of the producers. If its just some capitalist investment with the aim of making profit,then dts bad.very bad. But the movie could very well be about smtin else. It might be trying to bring to attention the faults in d nigerian nation state where such a dastardly act could even happen. It could be trying to dramatize the theme of man’s inhumanity to man. The movie could very well be acting as another voice of the dead students that needs to be heard to galvanize nigerians into a revolutionary could be any other reason and unless we know that, no stones should be cast.
