Adenike Yisa, who has two children, was lying on her sofa in the Sandy Row area, at 02:00 on Wednesday, when she heard a loud noise.
A hatchet smashed the livingroom window of her home and landed beside her on the floor. “Seriously, I thought it was gunshots,” she said, adding that all she could do was scream at the top of her voice. “I was so terrified for my children. “I don’t know how someone could be so bitter towards someone…to do something so terrifying to your fellow human being. I don’t know how they’ve been brought up or raised. “Someone shouldn’t be feeling this way. It’s a very bad feeling,” she said, speaking of her fear.
