A video of an unidentified Maputo woman saving her husband from an alleged abduction is making the rounds on social media. It seems the brave wife intervened as her husband was being brutally forced into a vehicle.
Heading online, @Abramjee shared the shocking clip.
"Maputo, Mozambique: Wife saves husband from being kidnapped," he matter-of-factly captioned the video.
In the video, a man can be seen running from two of the alleged perpetrators. The limited street view leaves much to the imagination but it seems the man is dragged to a car before his wife confronts the abductors.
Locals look on from the safety of a convenience store. Social media users were certainly left stunned by the clip. Check out some of the reactions below:
"Why walk on the street if you know you are worth few millions, that man wearing red peeping through the window standing inside, is the king of all cowards, who the hell watches an AK47 drama."
"No one helps any more. It's sad."
"Yoh. That woman is brave."
"Nah maybe the husband wanted to be kidnapped, he was sick and tired of the wife."
"We are out here trying to defend ourselves with paper spray and a baton against criminals with machine guns and pistols."
SAPS robbed: R5 rifles, shotguns & ammunition stolen from Tsineng police station
In more crime news, Briefly News previously reported that three Northern Cape men have police hot on their heels after robbing a police station at the weekend. The incident took place at Tsineng police station on Saturday.
According to reports, a female officer was alone on duty when the suspects entered at around 9:40pm and threatened her with their firearms.
They then proceeded to jump over the reception counter and escaped with R5 rifles, shotguns and ammunition. National police spokesperson Col Brenda Muridili confirmed that 15 firearms were stolen, The Sunday Times reports.
Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (Popcru) spokesperson Richard Mamabolo also confirmed the reports. The suspects ordered that the female cop hand over all 15 weapons and the keys to the safe, said Mamabolo.
“The female officer was then tied with cables and her cellphone stolen.”
Malambo went on to condemn the attacks, calling for more surveillance equipment to be made available to the often under-resourced rural communities, SABC News reports.
“Different police stations report on a regular basis that these are the challenges we’re facing and yet those reports do not amount to any form of action from the regional offices. So it’s got a lot to do with the fact that there are uneven allocation of resources within the SAPS.”
