According to several sources, gunshots rang out in downtown Lubumbashi around midnight. Visibly gun-free Bakata Katanga militiamen took over the post office square in the city center. They reportedly hoisted the flag of the independent state of Katanga. According to the provincial interior ministry, the attackers wanted to take control of the governorate of Haut Katanga province, Kasapa prison and the antenna of the Congo National Radio Television (RTNC).

Fulbert Milundu, Provincial Minister of the Interior has an idea of ​​the identity of the attackers. “The ones we have identified must be supporters of a well-known warlord in Lubumbashi called Kyungu Mutanga Gedeon . "

Some Lush residents denounce the attitude of the police. A video circulating on social media shows police officers targeting the body of an alleged assailant as jubilant passersby watch.
