Speaking with newsmen, Idahagbon alleged that the attackers used a state government Hilux vehicle.
He said he was inside the building when the shooting started but he narrowly escaped.
His words: “It was the State Government vehicle that they used. They came in a government Hilux van and started shooting at the building.
“They broke everything at the restaurant. It was a government vehicle.
“The President should declare a state of emergency. They have turned their gun barrel against their citizens”.
