The armed men broke into houses in the village of Ngvu in Ndu Subdivision at about 8:00 pm last night, stealing any household items they found, including clothes.
According to a native of the village who spoke to MMI, the heavily armed men also beat some of the villagers, wounding five persons severely.
The native says "a group of armed men broke into the village around 8:00 pm, shooting in the air to scare people. They robbed about 10 houses and left with items like dresses, TV sets, dishes, money, telephones, etc."
"... Some people were beaten and about five others who were robbed were wounded severely. I for one, my father was beaten and his dresses and a TV set taken away," the native of Ngvu recounted.
Armed robbery has been rising in this village, our source says, and they have no security to protect them from frequent harassment.
A similar incident occurred last week and yesterday's happening is the fifth occurrence within a short time.
“We are calling on the authorities to help our village. Now my mother doesn't even have what to wear because all her clothes were taken away," lamented our source.
