“It is true my wife has been shot dead. But the incident happened in my car. We were travelling together but in separate vehicles. My vehicle was first to be attacked. The incident occurred at about 11:49 pm. All of a sudden, I saw this car driving recklessly, crisscrossing my wife’s vehicle. I saw another vehicle hit the passenger side of my vehicle. Whilst I remained in the car, I quickly called the police. They responded swiftly and came to the scene within a spate of four minutes.” He said with sorrow.
He continued “After talking for a while, some people around pleaded for leniency for the guys because they were appeared drunk. Few minutes after the police had left with the suspects, we drove off”
