He said his resistance caused them to use force upon which he took off through the other backdoor in the kitchen. 

''My wife was not lucky. They kept her to mention my whereabouts from that time till about 3.20am when they left.'' He said.

According to him,' 'the hoodlums did not cart away any valuable but insisted on getting me'' an indication that they were on a mission to kill him. He has since reported the incidence to the police.
