A police report recounting the incident shows the victim running to the nearby police post for assistance but there was no trace of them after the police combed nearby bushes.

The robbers strategized and laid ambush until they resurfaced from the cemetery again in an attempt to rob another target.

“One of the robbers believed to be in his early 20s was shot but the other managed to escape. He was rushed to the police hospital for treatment but was pronounced dead. Body deposited at mortuary for identification and autopsy,” the police revealed.
