In a report by 3News, a mobile money vendor has been robbed heavily by four suspected armed robbers.
The incident reportdly occurred on April 21 at Bantama in the Ashanti Region and these armed men made away with over GH¢240,000.
Per the report, the four robbers were in masks and wielding pistols as they stormed Osuani Boakye Ventures at Bantama on the Bantama high street around 7:30 pm.
One of the victims who were at the premises who spoke to Akoma FM‘s current affairs and political talk show GhanAkoma, said;
“I was busily serving my customers so all that I heard was that…Where is the money, bring the money. When I raised my head, I saw a man in mask pointing a gun at me. The whole incident happened in 2 minutes as they took all the money we had and bolted.”
The owner of the venture, Yaw Boakye Dankwa in his narration also stated that;
“Earlier in the day we had made a withdrawal of GH¢241,000 for our daily operations and transactions so that’s the actual figure the armed robbers took, but I can say that we are not safe as a country because how can such a robbery incident be successful at an open place like Bantama high street?”
Though a CCTV camera spotted the incident, the images were not clear so we hope the police can make some arrests”.
He used the opportunity to appeal to the security agencies to increase visibility at some areas prone to attacks to fight the growing insecurity in Kumasi.
