A witness who would not want his name in print told journalists that “Ighoshemusua’s tenure as President General of the community had expired and he had successfully handed over to his successor” when he met his untimely death.

The witness said, “While the celebration was on, the out-gone PG left for his house. After some time, it was discovered that the man was no longer there and they sent for him to take part in a group photograph.

“It was in the process of taking the group photograph that the vigilante member started shooting into the air in celebration.

“At a point, as he was shooting, his pump-action gun did not respond. He brought the gun down and was trying to fix it when it exploded into the out-gone President General’s chest and he (PG) died on the spot.

“When the vigilante man saw what happened, he quickly took a motorcycle and was headed to the police station to report the matter, but some angry youths gave him a hot chase and stopped him at the railway line. They brought him back to the community and beat him to death.”
