The argument started after three police officers who were acting as traffic wardens stopped a road lane in order to make way for other commuters, not knowing that a bus conveying a number of soldiers was plying the same lane blocked by the officers.

An eyewitness who spoke with reporters disclosed that the soldiers were furious over the situation and asked the policemen why civilians would be allowed to pass before them.

The soldiers insisted that they would pass through one-way traffic, a position that triggered a heated argument between both parties.

Piqued that the police officers were insisting that traffic rules must be obeyed, the soldiers started beating the officers, one of whom was Orube.
