The Central Regional Command of the Ghana Police Service has put a GHS5,000 bounty of some some four armed robbers who attacked a man in broad daylight and bolted with his money.
The robbers, on two motorbikes, are said to have followed the 73-year-old man from a bank, where he withdrew a huge sum of money, to a shop he entered to reportedly buy building materials, 3news claimed.
Eye witnesses say the robbers confronted the man for the money but shot him in the leg after he struggled with them. They bolted with the full amount after overpowering him.
Addressing the press after the incident, the police said “we also have a booty of GH¢5,000 as a reward for anyone who will give credible information that will lead to the arrest of the perpetrators.
“Again, the Command wants to assure the general public that there is no cause for alarm, security situation is good and we have strategised to help us to get the perpetrators arrested.
“Everybody can freely go about his or her duty and the assurance is that we will continue to protect as it is the mandate of the Service.”
