While recounting the incident, he disclosed how he went to seek refuge in a nearby police checkpoint, but was surprised when the security official who were supposed to rescue them from the attack joined them in the survival race. In his words:
“I escaped, I got to policemen…The six policemen that supposed to rescue us started running with as well as we escaped from the gunmen,” Prince Edmond said.
