UNIPORT ALUU 4: Court Accepts Viral Video Footage As Evidence

A Rivers State High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, has admitted a YouTube video download of last year’s murder of four University of Port Harcourt, UNIPORT students in Omoukiri-Aluu as exhibit in the ongoing trial of the accused persons.

Trial judge, Justice Latan Nyordee, in his ruling, admitted the video as evidence, after defence counsel had challenged the admissibility of same. The video footage was tendered by the prosecution. But the defence argued that the video did not originate from the police.

Justice Nyordee in his ruling, noted that the tendered video footage, irrespective of its source, was bound to be admitted as exhibit to the extent of its relevance to the trial as overriding every other consideration.
