Ten thugs shot up three people, while robbing a motorbike in the capital early yesterday morning.

The four victims were coming back from a concert on Diamond Island when the 10 suspects blocked their path and demanded one of the victims’ Duke motorbike.

The victims fought back but the suspects opened fire, hitting three of the victims, before successfully taking the Duke.

The victims managed to get to Independence Hospital, where they gave a police statement. The armed robbers are still at large.
