Leakblast gathered that one Kelvin Chuku, a task force worker, reportedly used machete to cut the deceased over sharing formula.
The suspect, who is now in police custody, was arrested by their colleagues, when they discovered the degree of machete cut on the victim.
Sources revealed that sympathizers and relatives of the deceased took to the street in protest, when report  of Clement’s tragic death filtered  in the neighbourhood.
Eyewitnesses disclosed that the protest turned violent as hoodlums hijacked the process and starting unleashing mayhem on members of the public.
It was gathered that it took the  intervention of Okporo Police Station at Rumuodara and Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS)
