Though it is not certain if the hoodlums where kidnappers or armed robbers, witnesses at the scene of the incident disclosed to Vanguard that the couple had just finished making some financial transactions at a Point of Sale, PoS, spot in the area when they where accosted by the hoodlums.
Giving details of the incident, a resident of the area who spoke on condition of anonymity said it appeared the couple where returning from church when they were accosted by the hoodlums.
“Sensing the apprehension that arose from the gunshots, the hoodlums immediately fled the scene of the incident and headed towards the East-West road.”
