“He regained consciousness and managed to call my older brother who leaves next to him, who then called me and we brought them here,” he said.

“From what my brother is saying, they don’t know how the gang gained entry into their house as there was no commotion and hit him in the back with a blunt object,” he added.

Hit men

According to the victim’s brother, this was a planned attack because the gang repeatedly told his brother that they had instructions to kill him.

“We have had no reports of him having issues with anyone so we don’t understand who and why someone would send a gang to kill him,” he stated.

The family is now demanding justice for their kin, urging the police to be quick in the investigation.

The matter is already with the police and the investigations have started to know who the gang were and who sent them and why. We ask the family to be patient as we do the investigations
