The Begoro District Police Command is looking for four people who attacked a Metro Mass bus with the registration number GT 3389 – Z at the Begoro police checkpoint on Monday, May 3, 2021.
The four armed men allegedly robbed the passengers of GHS36,480.00 in cash and nine mobile phones.
The officers on duty, according to the police, were not on duty at the time of the incident.
“The padlock to the police barricade was left unlocked, enabling the robbers to get access to the room from where they mounted their own barriers and robbed the passengers with the above-mentioned sums of money, phones and beat some of the victims at gunpoint,” police added in a statement added.
The metro mass bus driver, George Asante, told police that they couldn’t see the men because they were wearing nose masks.
According to the police, at “7:40 a.m. on the same day, a taxi driver by the name George Ankomah came to the charge office and reported that he, along with three passengers, were robbed of GHS4,200 and a mobile phone around the same time at the exact spot.”
They did, however, state that they discovered their belongings at the crime scene after the armed robbers fled.
