The incident occurred on Tuesday morning, December 15, around Rumudara Town, at the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the state.

According to Vanguard, an eyewitness identified as Blessing, claimed that Pinkcoin, an online blockchain digital assets designed for giving charity, had invited everyone who registered with them in Obio/Akpor LGA to come and redeem their Christmas palliatives.

It was gathered that hundreds of people, said to be members of the initiative, gathered together at an office allegedly owned by the company.
