According to eyewitnesses, Mr Woyome was seated at an eatery with his family having dinner when the man, yet to be identified, rushed on the businessman and asked him to cough out the money.

“While Mr Woyome was enjoying his meal, the man stood at a distance and watched him for some time, after which he approached him to find out whether he was the Woyome who had defrauded the state,” one of  the eyewitnesses revealed.

The witness said Woyome’s wife immediately denied that her husband was the Woyome who had defrauded the state, but Mr Woyome himself admitted that he was Woyome and tried to find out what the man wanted from him.

“Immediately Mr Woyome confirmed his identity, the gentleman pounced on him shouting, ‘you are the one who spent our money. We will collect our money today,” the source said.

The action of the man frightened Woyome and the family as several shoppers were supporting the man, but later he also grabbed the attacker in the neck and attempted to pull him outside the mall.

This attracted other shoppers to the scene but Woyome, who at that moment was holding tight the shirt of his attacker, handed him over to the police outside the mall.

While the man was being taken away to the Mile 7 police Station, Mr Woyome and the rest of the family abandoned their food, sat in a Hyundai Santa Fe black car with 2010 registration number and followed up to the station.
