The alleged hijackers started shooting at Nefuri, but she decided not to back down.

Nefuri kept chasing the men until the vehicle eventually came to a standstill.

According to her, the robbers abandoned the “mission” after they realised she would not stop chasing them.

Luckily, they left the victim behind after abandoning the car.
