While narrating the unfortunate incident to local media, Niger Police Commissioner, Adamu Usman said,

The VIO sighted 3 Fulani youths named Juli Musa, Malami Mohammed and Dawa Ali riding on an unregistered bike and flagged the motorcycle down but they refused to obey the VIO officer's order to stop.

He also cautioned the general public to stop taking laws into their own hands but wait for the police to take action.

He said,

"We will not tolerate any act capable of bringing confusion to the state, as concrete security measures have since been put in place to guarantee peaceful coexistence among residents."

The Commissioner warned the villagers that any individual or group found to be in connection with the lynching of the VIO will face arrest and prosecution.
