As he tried to wrestle the gun man to submission, another emerged from his hiding and rained bullets on the police officer.

The sound of the gun caused commotion at the market as many could be seen running helter skelter.

"They were in their numbers with about three bikes. After shooting at the man, they mounted their bikes and asked the people to shout. No one dared until they had left the scene," a witness who preffered anonymity narrated.
"That was when the population started shouting as they rushed the victim to the hospital on a motor," he told drayinfos.

The normal hustling and bustling around Mobile Nkwen was transformed in to an atmosphere of pain and wailing.

Many decided to retire home for the day as no one could determine how the minutes would look like.
