The witness said, “What happened was the Emir’s representative came into town and was received by the interim chairman first. So, on their way to go and register his presence, angry youths attacked them.

“You know we still want our emirates that were dissolved and we are yet to recover from what happened. What happened isn’t violent at all but one of the glasses of their vehicle was destroyed.

“There is a police station in front of Karaye palace; that helped in bringing the situation under control as the police dispersed the crowd,” he added.
