During the course of the robbery, the driver, along with two porters, was assaulted by the two perpetrators.
INews understands that the men escaped with more than $3 million in cash.
When this publication arrived at the scene, an eyewitness explained: “Two men came up to the truck on a motorcycle and went to a guy and snatch the man and it looking so casual and all I see is this guy pulled this other Indian guy from the front seat and pulled him to the back and forced him into the back to open something and the other one was on the bike waiting on the other one.”
Meanwhile, the eyewitness, who also resides in the area, noted that there has been a surge in crime in the community.
