She said the soldiers ordered the family members to come down from the car and enter their own vehicle.

She said they were kept in the vehicle for 30 minutes until her uncle asked one of the officers to explain what was happening and what their offence was.

Tonia said the officer in question said they should remain quiet and exercise patience as they will be well informed of their offence when they get to where they would be taken to.

She noted that the officers warned her against making any telephone call after she attempted to bring out her phone.

She stated that they were left off the hook after their phone numbers were collected.
