Two armed robbers on a motorcycle robbed a forex bureau operator who also trades in gold of GH250,000 in cash and GH150,000 in gold.
The heist occurred about 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 28, in Amanfrom, Ga South Municipality, Greater Accra Region.
Alhaji Mumuni, the bureau operator, told Adom News in an interview that his money got stolen while he was with his brother, suggesting that the suspects may have trailed them from Kasoa Zongo.
He said he was on his way with his brother to purchase gold from a customer when they were attacked and robbed at Amanfrom Top Town.
Alhaji Mumuni indicated that upon reaching a section of the road, the robbers on motorbikes stopped them, pulled out pistols and started firing into the sky.
The business owner said that when he and his brother failed to hand over the bag, the suspects started firing directly at them.
Meanwhile, Jonathan Essel who witnessed the incident said bystanders wanted to intervene but the suspects directed the gun at them, amidst claims they were police officers.
