Takoradi: Man shot in daylight robbery dies

A man believed to be in his 50s who was shot by armed robbers on Monday, April 12, 2021, after withdrawing money from a bank in Takoradi in the Western Region has died.

This was confirmed to Citi News by the administrator of the Takoradi Hospital, Reverend Osei Owusu.

The suspected armed robbers shot the man in the company of his wife and took away undisclosed sums of money.

Eyewitnesses who spoke to Citi News said the man and the wife were attacked by the robbers who were on a motorbike.

“It was a horror scene. We couldn’t do anything about it because the robbers were just firing the warning shots, so we could not foil the robbery. Never have we seen such an attack in Takoradi,” one of the eyewitnesses said.

The unfortunate development has created fear among the residents.

The armed robbers were said to have shot the thighs of their victims and thereafter bolted with some undisclosed amounts from the two incidents.
