According to a statement released by the public relations officer DC Joseph, the young man was not a passenger of the bus what was apprehended but a good citizen who came to fetch water for the custom patrol men whenever they return to the base.
In the statement, it was during a struggle to disarm the officer that a bullet discharged and hit the friend of the custom consequently leading to death.
