She said, “Around 5pm, I was closing the shop when the men approached me saying they wanted to buy recharge card. “Before I knew what was happening, the men brought out guns and went into my shop, They stole recharge cards and money. I engaged them in a struggle and attempted to prevent them from fleeing. They overpowered me and used the butts of their guns to hit me in the face and head.”
“Another team of policemen also came but the crowd ignored them. Some of them (crowd) got tyres, placed them round the robbers’ necks and set them ablaze.
“They however handed over their guns to the police.”
“We cannot continue to fold our arms. By this act, robbers will be afraid anytime they think of coming here.”
“Police are holding my recharge cards as exhibit, I want them back because I am the victim,” she said.
