A young man who lives in the same premises with the lady said as the robbers were about to get out
of the compound with the pot of soup, the woman raised alarm prompting neighbours to go after them and caught up with the one carrying the pot of soup and dealt him several machete cut before setting him ablaze.
“It was almost dawn when the boys attacked the woman and carried her pot of soup and when they were about getting out of the compound, she raised alarm and people came out and pursued them and caught up with this one”. Vanguard’s source who prefers anonymity said
He said the boy was not able to run as fast as his accomplices were because he did not drop the pot of soup but was running with it which gave the mob the chance to catch up with him and butche him.
“This is not the first time they have come to our compound to steal. Last week they removed the car battery of one of our neioghbours and once night falls, they waylay people, especially ladies around Goldie by Atu and snatch their handbags and phones”. He said.
At the time of writing the report there was no sign of the presence of security agents there while the body was still lying by the Atu Secondary School fence.
