“Benjamin Awusi, he is a resident of Winneba, and has been involved in numerous robbery cases, but luck eluded him last Saturday where he and his accomplices embarked on a robbery spree on the Agona Swedru road. They first attacked a certain woman and took cash of GH¢2,000 and beat her up. They went ahead to Kofi Taylor junction on the Cape Coast road and robbed a woman of her Infinix mobile phone and GH¢4.”

“They moved a short distance and attacked a 22-year-old lady. She had ¢1,000 on her. Awusi and his accomplices, 3 others, attacked her and collected the money. When the lady was screaming, a taxi driver who decided to offer her help was also attacked by them. They used a knife and cut a part of his ear and stole the car.”

Another person came and wanted to help the taxi driver, but they opened fire on him, and luckily, he escaped unhurt,” he narrated.
