According to the estate Chairman, the attack was the second in the estate in as many weeks. On that fateful day, the robbers were said to have gained entrance into the estate by scaling the fence around 2 am where they operated for two hours without interruption, moving from one building to the other.
Before the robbers left, they had inflicted machete cuts on a man, flogged another with belt before slamming pestle on his head.
One of residents said:
"After robbing a particular apartment, they would lock the family in a room. They apparently did not want them to call for help or alert other neighbours. Then they would move to another apartment. We heard they robbed four buildings."
