Woman robbed of GH¢29,000 at gun point

A 33-year-old woman was on Monday (September 20, 2021) attacked and robbed of GH¢29,000 at gunpoint by three suspected robbers at Apenkwa near Lapaz, in the Greater Accra Region.

The incident happened at about 3 pm while the victim was returning from a bank near the Apenkwa Traffic Light.

It is not clear if the woman is a staff or a customer of the bank.

A police statement signed by the Acting Director-General of the Public Affairs Directorate of the Ghana Police Service, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Mr. Kwesi Ofori confirmed the robbery.

It said the police were pursuing three persons suspected to have attacked the victim.

It said even though the victim was attacked at gunpoint, she escaped unhurt, however, a bystander who sustained injuries was responding to treatment

“We want to assure the public that these criminals can run but they cannot hide. We will get them,” the statement said and urged any person with valuable information about the incident to contact the police to assist with the investigation and possible arrest of the three suspected perpetrators.

Hope they find them but still asking myself where are they going to find them???

Always they will be investigating cases but we will not hear anything again. Now even in broad day light they’re attacking people with gun. I saw some with my own eyes at atomic . A mobile money agent around 11:30am. Even police were in the traffic but can’t do anything because they robbers were holding gun

You see erh I don’t really know why it’s only when a Police is going to operation before they’re given guns and maybe without even a bullet :thinking::thinking::thinking:

It’s because some this same people gv the guns to the robbers for this acts

well, that is their work. As such we expect that they give their best. Anyways, Let’s just give them our support and hope for the better

That’s why we have the CID’s and it’s their duty to investigate in all these but they don’t do that

They do but once they offer them huge sum of money then everything comes to an end
