The Central Regional Command of the Ghana Police Service has put a ₵5,000 bounty of some four armed robbers who attacked a man in broad daylight and made away with a huge sum of money, albeit unspecified.
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.
The man who reportedly was not willing to lose his money without any struggle was shot in the leg after which he was overpowered and his money taken away.
Addressing the press after the incident, the police said “we also have a booty of ¢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, the security situation is good and we have strategized 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.”
