Theft robbery

Passengers shot in midnight robbery on Accra-Kumasi Highway

Passengers travelling from Accra to Kumasi had the shock of their lives when they were ambushed and robbed of their belongings and cash by armed robbers on the Accra- Kumasi highway midnight on Monday.

One of the VIP bus drivers who escaped unhurt narrated the incident to Luv fm’s David Akwetey. He said driving few minutes after Linda Dor from Accra, he noticed vehicles parked along the shoulders of the road. Thinking there was an accident, he slowed down only to see a man dressed in black wielding a gun and signaling him to stop. Sensing danger, he ignored the order and stepped on the accelerator. This angered the robber and he started firing sporadically. The engine of the VIP bus was hit by the bullet, and this made him loss control and ramped into a hill few meters away.

Several passengers were left traumatized and some sustained gun-shot wounds. A military team later arrived to put the situation under control.
