On January 9, at about 0800hrs, the complainant went to the Koala Shopping Centre, Cantonments, but she decided to pick the Company’s invoice and voucher to audit them and left for the head office at Airport.
On seeing the complainant leave the office, Osabutey alerted the accused persons through phone calls and Obaliko and Quarcoe boarded a BMW motor bike and moved closer to the Koala head office.
Obaliko and Quarcoe trailed the complainant to a point near the American Embassy at Cantonments.
Prosecution said Obaliko who was then the pillion rider alighted, drew out a pistol at the complainant and ordered her to surrender her handbag to him.
Chief Supt Tuaruka said Ms Horsu refused to comply and raised the alarm.
He said this infuriated Obaliko who pushed the complainant down and shot her twice in her thigh and calf and after which he (Obaliko) and Quarcoe sped off.
A taxi driver, who witnessed the incident, chased them with his vehicle and hit their motor bike.
Police investigations, however, led to the arrest of the rest of the accused persons.
The victim, who was shot twice by the accused persons, was treated at the 37 Military Hospital.
Prosecution said the Police are conducting further investigations to arrest the two other accomplices who are now at large.
