Condemning the attack on the people of Newbell, Governor Samuel Dieudonne Ivaha Diboua warned the perpetrators and promised them a tough time, should they continue with their deviant behaviour.
He equally took the opportunity to sensitize the youths on the need for peace, social cohesion and living together.

No death was recorded, though some were reportedly wounded, given the violent nature of the act.
