The Deputy Governor was not at home when the incident happened and responded to a journalist via SMS,

“I am not at home, I will give more details later.” Hon. Titus Ntuchiu replied.

Further information was revealed in a video clip that surfaced online, A man who claimed to be a friend of the deceased tried to warn him that he risked being arrested.

“ I was told that he had been spotted causing chaos on the farm, I later took my motorcycle and sped to the area, I told him that he risked being arrested yet he has a young child.” He said in a video.
