The dreadful armed robbery gang terrorising commuters in the Fanteakwa North District of the Eastern Region has struck again shooting one person and injuring others with the butt of their guns Wednesday dawn on the Begoro to Ahomahomasu road.
The robbery gang numbering about seven (7) according to some of the victims, hijacked one vehicle carrying traders after robbing them off their belongings to mount a blockage on the road.
Other vehicles onboard market women were attacked and occupants beaten and subjected to inhumane treatments before robbing them off their monies and other personal effects.
“They beat us mercilessly. One of the robbers removed the pant of a woman, used torchlight to search her private part if she was hiding some money having taken ghc400 from her”.
Police Patrol team from Begoro arrived belatedly at the scene after several destress calls hence no arrest was made.
The injured are on admission at the Begoro Government Hospital.
There seems to be no end in sight to years of terror unleashed by the dreaded robbery gang operating in the area with impunity as police appear heppless in arresting them.They mostly struck on Market days and during funeral ceremonies in the area.
Today’s incident happened barely a week after a similar attack on traders on Deedeso to Ahomahomasu which led to the shooting of at least three(3) traders.
