The head of the Electoral Commission in the Ashanti Region Benjamin Bannor according to information reaching us has been robbed at a gunpoint in the region.

From a source, he was attacked while returning to Kumasi from an official trip to the Western region.

he robbers reportedly seized his personal belongings and that of other occupants of the Nissan Patrol vehicle on which they were travelling.
