Some footage of mourners fleeing to their heels as what appeared to be gas filled the air has subsequently emerged, with many saying that police officers on the scene used tear gas to force mourners away.
Oluwadolarz, a popular comedian who was also there at the event, tweeted a video of himself in distress, adding, “They chased us away with teargas.” “They chased us,” he said.
