This is how Usman captured the incident on his wall:

"He is by name Isiaka Isah; he was caught in the act of digging one of the graves at the Karaworo/Angwan Tiv Muslim cemetery today morning by our well-trained vigilante men in the community.

If not for our quick intervention, he could have been mobbed to dead by the angry youths. But during my interrogation with the suspect, he said his intention was not to exhume a dead body.

He further said that he has been having a fearful terrible nightmare in which he does see ghosts chasing him which now led him to consult a native doctor who instructed him to go and bury some items in a grave so that the ghost will stop chasing him.”

He was since been handed over to the DPO ‘A’ Division, Lokoja, for further investigation."
