Security man stabbed to death during an attack

A security guard was fatally stabbed during a attack at the Goil Filing Station.

Two people were hurt and one person died in a morning attack on one of the Goil Fuel Station outlets.

Prosper Dotse Kugbleafe, the dead who has been identified, was a station security guard and a retired army officer.

At the Wassa Akropong Goil Fuel Station, the tragic tragedy took place.

The Operations Manager for Goil, Awudu Issaka, confirmed the robbery attack and stated, "I received a call around 4am stating that our station at Wassa Akropong had been robbed by bandits. Another call informed us that our security officer, Prosper, had been slain during the raid as we were en route from Kumasi to the location. It's a tragic tale.

He said, "One of the robbers slapped our supermarket attendant when they demanded a safety key [which he didn't even know what it was]," He currently suffers eye issues as a result of the slap.

Mr. Awudu claims that one other employee was knocked to the ground by the gun that was taken from the deceased's security officer. One of the robbers attempted to shoot a member of the staff, but the gun did not go off, according to CCTV footage.

He continued, saying that the second security guard stationed at the gas station opened fire, causing the criminals to ultimately flee the area.

The other security personnel opened fire and even pursued the criminals. He could have fired one if he had been close enough, but we can't determine if he was hit or not. We are grateful, and my sympathies go out to Prosper Dotse's family.

Meanwhile the Wassa Akropong Fuel Station Manager, who spoke to Angel News called for police reinforcement in the area noting that the increased activities of robbers would drive investors away.
