The bandits were said to have invaded the estate in large numbers on motorcycles, shooting indiscriminately and targeting the home of a Customs officer.

They succeeded in taking away the Customs officer’s wife, leaving the children who were shouting, behind,” said the source, adding, “the bandits attacked another house where an elderly woman was taken away too.

“The police were able to arrest two of them (bandits) on Sunday while the other three (bandits) were arrested this morning (Monday),” he added.
