Masked gunmen killed a 28-year-old mobile money vendor, Owusu Adjei, in the Onwi electoral district of the Ejisu Municipality of Ashanti, on Wednesday, August 26, 2020, at approximately 7:30 p.m.

The Assembly Member for the area, narrating the ordeal, said armed robbers wearing nose masks came to the vendor and pretended to withdraw money.

He said, "Around 7:30 p.m., I wasn't there but, according to the eyewitness, they said they [the robbers] were two, they came to make mobile money [transactions] wearing nose masks; one of them was standing in front of the container.

"The other one went around the container, went inside the container, so the mobile money vendor told him to leave, and he was insistent, but he refused, and asked for the vendor's bag containing the money.

"The vendor refused and pushed the armed robber, and then the other who was standing in front of the container pulled the trigger."

Later, the robbers bolted with an unspecified amount of money after shooting the MoMo vendor.
