The robbers, armed with AK47 assault rifles stormed the place and asked their victims to comply with their demands or be shot to death.
They then demanded money, mobile phones and other expensive items in possession of the terrified victims who readily complied to save themselves from the wrath of the gun-wielding bandits.

After taking their booty, they fled immediately before the police were called to the scene.
