A neighbour who lives close to where the incident occurred said in a statement:
”We heard the gunshot from the direction of the corps members’ room. One of them was heard shouting ‘Jesus!’ repeated times and asking what was their crime. Another shot sounded and he stopped talking”
In addition, the neighbour also further gave an explanation that the deceased corps members, who were attached to a private school known as Victory Group of Schools, close to their residence were marking exam scripts before the robbery attack occurred along School Road in the Swali area of Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.
