"The robbers immediately searched for alcohol and found a few bottles of beer that was left in the fridges as most of the alcohol had already been removed from the premises before the national lockdown.


"We are concerned that an armed gang like this can take advantage of the lockdown and the curfew to prey on businesses causing more losses at a very difficult.''


The hotel has been closed since the start of the national lockdown in March.
