As a Centurion man recovers from his hijacking ordeal, it has emerged that this was the fifth time he was hijacked since 1997.
Gunmen confronted Keith Lawrence outside his lawyers’ office on Thursday afternoon. His wife Naomi believes the hijackers followed him to the building from a bank he had stopped at earlier.
Lawrence’s friend Ken Assad contacted Talk Radio 702 sparking a frantic search for the man and his car. Assad was speaking to Lawrence on the phone when the attackers struck. He then started recording what he heard as his friend was being held up.
Naomi said she is relieved her husband was not harmed.
“He is fine, he has been hijacked five teems before so he has been through all of this before. He is calm and grateful that he was not hurt,” said Naomi.
