The driver, identified as one Victor Ebhomenyen, was seen pushing Erhabor, who was armed with an AK-47 rifle, by his chest while attempting to shove him to the ground.

Despite the provocation, Erhabor maintained a professional calmness, thereby averting what could have led to another incident of extra-judicial killing.

In the interview, Erhabor said he has faced confrontations from citizens including being slapped by a woman, but he has never thought of using his rifle at such moments.

Regarding the incident that brought him to the limelight, Erhabor said he instructed his boys to record the young man while he was assaulting him and told them not to touch him “because something was wrong with him and he shouldn’t allow him die in our hands.”
