A trotro driver plying the Soutuom-Santa Maria road courageously did the unthinkable when he saved an innocent woman from being robbed by armed robbers this dawn at 5am. The commercial vehicle driver chanced upon the robbers who were in the process of robbing their victim. The victim a fruit seller, was slashed with knife to release her money which she was holding to the robbers.
The robbers upon seeing the vehicle of the trotro driver who had by then loaded his vehicle to full capacity, decided to flee on their motorbike. But luck eluded the robbers, when the driver without any hesitation hit the robbers with his vehicle. The criminals fell into the nearby gutter and sustain various degree of injuries.
The vehicle somersaulted over several times with its passengers on board. The criminals and the injured passengers have since been admitted at the hospital receiving treatment. Social media has been set on confusion with diverse views expressed on it.
Whiles some appreciate the gallant effort of the driver and hail him as a hero, others call his action reckless. They have explained that he should have considered the lives of the passengers before doing this.
Below are some of their comments.
