They had guns, knives and whips with which they dispersed people. They didn’t shoot at anybody. Their faces were covered. I am still shaking from the shock. I thought they would attack me since my shop was open at the time they passed. Later on I heard they were beating some people and asking others to go back home.”

Another eyewitness said that a military team arrived at the town around 8:30am and is currently patrolling it to ensure that normalcy is restored.
