Given that the newly released movie, Linda Ikeji does not appear to have complied with their request.

On bird app platform, the development has arouse a variety of responses from the move caused by the Nigerian entrepreneur.

While some tweep shamed her move, others applauded her for highlighting the unfairness the boys endured.

A well known user, identified as @peekaymila said ,”Linda Ikeji is a despicable human. She made a movie about the Aluu 4 victims without the consent of the parents. Went ahead to release the movie on @netflix, even after the parents expressed their dissatisfaction and opposed the idea. How could @netflix let this happen?”

A Popular influencer @DanielRegha also tweeted, “Linda Ikeji making a movie about the Aluu 4 victims isn’t a problem, cos anyone can make a movie about people, living or dead; But since the affected families disapproved, Linda should’ve canceled the movie. She’s profiting from other people’s misfortune & that’s truly evil.

@rukevwejacobs also wrote,”The Aluu 4 story had to be told in film. Thanks, Linda Ikeji. True, this story may not be welcomed by the families concerned. But for the sake of them, for the sake of Deborah and many others, we need to remember. This film is the most useful film I have watched from Nigeria.”

@Lithmike added that, “I think we should all give Linda ikeji a break out problem is that we play emotion too much in the country u see that Aluu 4 story if a Nigerian don’t tell it a white man will steal it and tell it the way it suits them and nothing will happen.

Another tweep identified as @OlujuwonBabs said,” How does this make Linda Ikeji despicable? Does the family own the right to a public story? Are we being emotional because it’s Linda or cos it involves money? It’s a public story and it can be told by anyone.

Linda ikeji will never get my coins so I’ll never watch that movie. There’s no curiosity to be satisfied. I could barely watch the real thing. I do not want to relive that.” TheHabaneroChef tweeted.

@jeaneluc also wrote via twitter platform saying, “The Aluu 4 murders will always be too much for me even to remember. That was the height of barbarism. Thinking about what happened is hard. Linda Ikeji doesn’t care about the memories of those boys, she’s just a bloody story thief desperate for success.”
