Before the attack, Nasa supporters were shouting at police on a barricade erected on City Walk Way, just outside International Life House.

A boda boda rider who operates from around Kencom area said there has been a beehive at the vicinity for some time now.

“These guys protesting did not know about the hive,” he said.

Police, journalists and the protestors had to flee in the melee as bees attacked even passersby.
