According to him, they came with two pick-up vehicles and made way with the corpse and the coffin through the dark.

“They wanted to take away the black stool in the palace which I resisted but from no where, a policeman who wants to ascend the throne, appeared and fired more shots,” he said.

Meanwhile, residents, who are living in fear because they don’t know when these perpetrators will return to the town, are appealing for maximum security in the area.
