His daughter was hiding under a bed when she heard him crying as the gunmen thrashed him with sticks. According to police, she ran towards her fatherâ€™s attacker and struck him with an axe. As he collapsed, she snatched his AK47 and shot him dead.
She also shot and wounded another militant as he made his escape.
Police have hailed the womanâ€™s bravery.
They said she would be nominated for the presidentâ€™s gallantry award.
And good show on the part of the police for praising her behavior. Here they would have had to publicly say what a bad idea it is to fight back, and how such things can easily turn against the defender.
