According to Owoyesigyire, when they resisted, Gerald Agaba opened fire killing Nsejje instantly. He adds that when the SPCs tried to disarm Agaba, he shot them too.
According to reports, the armed Congolese soldiers carried an impromptu raid on the fishermen at around 9 pm accusing them of encroaching on the Congolese side. They arrested the fishermen and took away their gears to Congo.
