It was further gathered that the vigilante officer, whose name could not be ascertained at the time of filling this report was at the area as part of security apparatus put in place for the visiting governor.

An eye witness who pleaded anonymity hinted our correspondent that the vigilante member reportedly opened fire on the convoy even when there was no argument between him and another person.

The source further said that some of the commissioners who were dozing in the bus around 10pm were confused as many of them scampered for safety.
