When the assailants arrived at Innocent’s residence, they said that some criminals were stealing his provisions store, which was only a few meters away, but he refused to give in to their antics, according to the source.
“When he refused to open his door, his assailants shot at and shattered the glass window of his room, and used dynamite to force the iron door open.
They dragged him out of the room and shot him dead. After they had gruesomely murdered him, they released two gunshots again and went away,” the source said
