A motor rider has been shot by armed robbers who attacked a woman at Achimota Old Station around midday, on Monday, September 20, 2021
Reporting from the scene of the incident, Mark Bryon of UTV narrated that the robbers who were on a motorbike trailed the woman from the Universal Merchant Bank, Abeka Branch where she had withdrawn an amount of GHC20,000.00 and robbed her.
According to the reporter, the robbers in the act demanding the money from the woman who was driving in her car mistook an oncoming motor rider for a police officer and shot at him.
For fear of getting the motor rider who was shot for the second time killed amid warning shots, the woman handed over the money to the robbers who then bolted on their motorbike from the scene.
A military team around the area arrived on the scene but met the absence of the thieves.
The reporter indicated that the man who was shot sustained injury to his hand while the woman who was robbed was left traumatised from the event.
