The attack on Mozia (SAN) happened at the exit gate of the Tribunal while he was on a convoy with some of his colleagues. But while the vehicles in front of his car drove off, on sighting his car, the PDP youths blocked it at the exit gate and started banging on the glasses, while casting aspersions at him.

Speaking to Edoconnect shortly after the incident, Mozia (SAN) who described the incident as shocking lamented that “ I have earlier informed the security agents to stop these youths from converging at the exit gate because it is dangerous for us. And it happened today, the moment they saw me they started shouting thief thief, APC thief and blocked my car.
