Another crime incident occured this afternoon at Dansoman in the Greater Accra Regional and national capital, Accra. This incident involves a young businesswoman who was monitored and subsequently robbed by unarmed robbers in broad daylight.
According to the victim, Ramatu Habiba, a businesswoman based in Accra, she went to take money (totalling about 2,500 Ghana Cedis) from her business account from an automated teller machine (ATM) of the Ghana Commercial Bank ( GCB).
Oblivious of what or who was watching her, she recounted the money infront of the ATM and set out to go and buy some inventories (groceries) to stock up her shop. She taught it was already too early for robbers to operate.
However, some two unarmed young men were watching her from a distance. Immediately she set out on the road to board a car, the two young men pretended to be passers-by and quickly snatched the small handbag containing the money and other important stuffs including her identity cards and ran away.
"I just withdrawn an amount of two thousand five hundred Cedis (GH¢ 2,500) from the ATM behind me and I decided to count it so I can easily allocate the money to the specific items I planned to buy. I thought it was already too bright for armed robbers to operate so I didn't thought about it," Ramatu Habiba explained.
She reported the issue to the Dansoman Police Command who are keenly investigating the matter at stake. Unfortunately, the woman didn't see the faces of these men. She only knows that they are two in number.
Oftentimes we think too highly of ourselves and wouldn't be cautious about our dealings as we go about our daily activities. Whether day or night, let's be careful with how we deal with everything in particular parts of the country.
