One person has been shot dead by suspected armed robbers at Ekye Amanfrom in Kwahu, Afram Plains South District in the Eastern Region.

The fully masked four men gang wearing trousers and shirts emerged on foot from the Ekye Market center direction and allegedly attacked Samuel Agbozo Enterprise (a mobile money and phone shop company ), as well as a nearby provision shop at about 7:30pm on Saturday October 9,2021 amidst sporadic gunshots. The robbers were on foot from the Ekye Market wearing face mask that covers their head to the neck, armed with daggers and AK47 invaded Samuel Agbozo Enterprise amidst gunshots, destroyed his glass showcase and went away with the phones he had displayed for sale,as well as the mobile money cash. They also attacked a nearby provision shop and took away an unknown amount of money into their bags and absconded into the bush. It was like a movie because people were selling around but nobody could face them.

A young man on motorbike identified as Bright, oblivious of the robbery operation, was shot on his motorbike when he approached the robbery scene at the roadside. The robbers absconded into the bush with unknown amount of money and a number of mobile phones before the Police officers arrived at the scene. The motor rider who was injured and bleeding profusely from gunshot injury was rushed to Ekye Health Center by the police ,unfortunately pronounced dead on arrival.

This isn’t the first time a mobile money vendor has been attacked time this year in Ekye Amanfrom. The first attack occurred six months ago when armed robbers ambushed and attacked a vendor who was on his way home after closing from work in the evening. The victim escaped gunshot but the robbers absconded with his money in his bag.
