The other victim whose name could not be ascertained at the time of filing this report indicates that he was hit by a Hilux car belonging to the member, Yakurr 11 Constituency, Hon. Eteng Jona Williams at the entry to Mkpani, and the person is now receiving treatment in a medical facility within the area.

The two men who are both supporters of the LP candidate for the Yakurr 11 Constituency, Capt. Eno Utum Ina, have gone into hiding for their lives.
