He went further that the accused person pushed them into his bedroom and asked them to sit on the floor and they threatened to kill his wife if she refused. He disclosed that the accused persons also attempted to rape his wife but his wife lied to them that she is an HIV and AIDS positive and they step back for fair of the disease. He continued that the accused persons tied their hands and feet with rope and collected his valuable properties including money and car worth millions of Leones. He went on to say that the accused persons also went into the room of his son and fetch his son and threatened to harm him with the cutlass if they fail to give them more money.

 

He added further that his wife asked the accused persons to take everything in the house but not to hurt their only child.
