As the man waved Mr Atarhe bye, the two men appeared and ordered him to get out of the car, threatening to shoot him if he disobeyed. The man knowing what will happen, drove off and refused to surrender his car to these thieves. One of the thieves brought out his locally made handgun and shot Mr Atarhe on his left hand.
He managed to get to the nearest police station to report the incident. Meanwhile, the loud bang from the riffle attracted some youths who chased the two robbers. One of the robbers escaped while his partner was caught. Before the police arrived at the scene the thief has already been beaten to death by angry mob.
