A source in the community said members of OSPAC in the area initially prevented the youths from burning down the house of “Tuface” over the killing of the Air Force officer.
The OSPAC members had however all run away.
The late Air force personnel was said to have gone to the operational base of OSPAC to demand the release of his friend detained by the outfit over alleged involvement in cultism.
