According to PUNCH, residents of surrounding communities, who spoke under the condition of anonymity, said Nabajallah was attacked because members of the rival gang, were unhappy over his interference in the marriage.
Angered by Nabajallah’s death, his group confronted members of the rival gang during which they killed three of them.
