Upon hearing the news, residents of Nguroje, the community where the victim hails from, gathered and rushed to the police station in the community, where the policeman was. They invaded the police station, apprehended the suspected killer and lynched him.
There is currently tension among residents of the community amidst fears the police may carry out a retaliatory attack on residents.
When contacted, the Taraba police spokesperson said he just received a call from the area and does not have details of the incident yet.
