On Tuesday afternoon, the country was shaken by news of a terror attack in the capital. The news came at around 3pm when reports emerged that 14 Riverside Drive complex had been attacked by a group of gunmen. Explosions of what were burning cars as well as gunshots rang in the air. Some people managed to scamper to safety but many more were left trapped in the complex.
