Theft robbery

Tears flow as Kumasi car dealer is shot dead in Daylight bank robbery; bag loads of cash taken away

Residents of the Kumasi suburb of Buokrom Estate in the Ashanti region were stricken by shock on Tuesday evening after armed robbers shocked and killed a man and made away with loads of cash from a non-bank financial service provider.

The middle-aged man was shot and killed by the robbers moments after he had deposited the proceeds of a car sale at the Community Consult Limited.

Eyewitnesses say the robbers were four in number, wielded assorted guns and rode on two motorbikes.

They suspect that the robbers are not Ghanaians; one eyewitness who spoke with Kumasi-based Pure FM said the robbers spoke "broken English".

It is unclear how much the robbers managed to take away but eyewitnesses say their loot was packed in a big 'Ghana must go' back.

Management of the company are yet to make any comment on the issue but Police in the Ashanti region have begun an investigation into the matter.

The body of the deceased has been deposited at the Manhyia Government Hospital morgue pending an autopsy.

This is the fourth broad daylight robbery in the Kumasi Metropolis in less than one year.

Residents have called for increased police patrol and visibility as the crime rate in the city continues to rise.
