A 45-year-old farmer is now being hailed as a hero today after he defended himself and saved his wife’s life, from what would have turned out to be a fatal attack.
Approximately at noon, the farmer and his spouse who are actively involved in coal-burning visited a location where they produced the commodity when they were suddenly paged by 2 men who boldly brandished handguns on the couple.
According to the police report, one of the men who have been identified as 34 years old, Cedane Galloway, from the community of Granville in the parish, said he was sent to kill the farmer.
He then approached the farmer and his wife with his gun brandished but was immediately chopped with a machete by the farmer in his upper body.
The two men then sped off on foot, after which Galloway who was known as G-Dawg collapsed in nearby bushes, while the other man escaped.
The police were called to the scene by the farmer, who investigated the premises and found the body of Galloway with a chop to his neck, which proved to be fatal.
The missing man is currently being hunted by the police, as his identity was discovered by investigations.
Members of the Green Park community in the parish, are celebrating the quick thinking of the farmer who could have innocently died with his wife.
