According to Amina Faal, the Chief Executive Officer of Men’s Closet Aminaa, the incident occurred at around 9 a.m. on Sunday.

“They took a lot of items in the shop which can be worth up to more than two hundred thousand dalasis (D200, 000.00). The items stolen include clothes, shoes, and other luxury accessories. The shoes are many and I had a new arrival which I didn’t price before the incident occurred,” she explained.

Ms. Faal described the incident as a major setback for her young business while calling on people to help her recover the items.

She further revealed that the thieves have broken the doors of her shop which needed urgent maintenance. This, she added, is devastating as she would have to start everything again from scratch.

The matter has been reported to the police for investigation, however, such incidents are not uncommon as barely a day or two will pass without hearing such news on local news outlets across the country.
