UGHELLI—A four-man robbery gang, weekend, inflicted multiple machete cuts on a businesswoman, identified as Rita Mbido, during an operation at Ughelli, Delta State. The incident, it was gathered, occurred at Daniel Umukoro, Uloho Avenue, residence of the victim at about 7:30p.m., Friday.

According to a witness, who spoke on condition of anonymity, the victim and her family members were entering their residence unaware that robbery was in progress. Two members of the gang kept watch outside the compound, while others were inside.

The witness said: “On sighting the robbers, the victim screamed ‘armed robbers’. They then descended on her with machetes, leaving deep cuts.”
