“I still can’t believe what I saw. Initially it looked like a movie. The man heading the Aflao direction took a sudden U-turn and assailants kept pursuing. One of the gunmen even fell off the motorbike into a gutter. He quickly put himself together and kept firing. I eventually had to hide after the robbers shot the deceased in his car,” she narrated.
