Information reaching us indicate that, a group of armed men took to the streets of Wasa Akropong on Thursday, May 11th, 2022, shooting rounds at all angles, injuring many persons and forcing others to run for their life.
The incident occurred after the gang looted a gold buying office at the main lorry station and were looking for ways to escape, according to the report.
Eyewitness told riversfmonline.com, after robbing a gold buying office and passengers at the main station, the gang of four resorted to shooting at different angles on the highway street to scare people away so they could escape.
“I was right behind the fuel station when I heard a gunshot, followed by shouting and running.” I stepped outside to see what it was and was surprised to see four individuals on the street spraying bullets and shooting here and there as they walked towards the police station, which I later learned were armed robbers who had just robbed gold buying offices and passagers here.”
The police have initiated a manhunt for the robbers, but no arrests have been made so far.
Stay tuned as we await the police’s official statement.
