At 2:45 a.m., I got a call from my friend, the news editor at the government's ELBC radio station. She whispered armed robbers are at my house. They were driving a pickup truck into the wall of her gated compound, trying to break it down. They cursed and yelled asking her to open the gate. They used iron rods to try to pry it loose, and then one used a metal pole to attempt to vault over the wall.
She explained that she couldn't get anyone to respond on the emergency services number, which also happens to be 911.
