A/R: Cashier shot dead; cop, one other injured in bullion heist

The robbers fired gun shots and bolted with unspecified amount of money
A 35-year-old cashier has been shot dead and two other persons wounded in a robbery attack at Manso-Mem Junction on the Manso-Kumasi road in the Ashanti Region.

The incident occurred on Friday, 11 September 2020.

The team, made up of four persons: the driver of the vehicle, two police officers and the cashier, were travelling from Manso-Asaman to some banks in Kumasi on a Toyota Hilux bullion van with registration number GE 3978 – 20 under the escort of a private security firm Agate Mabot.

On reaching a section of the road near Manso-Mem Junction, the team was attacked by masked men numbering about seven with four of them wielding AK-47 assault rifles, the report read.

The robbers fired gunshots at the van and bolted with an unspecified amount of money packed in two huge boxes.

The robbers also seized two AK-47 rifles containing about 30 rounds of ammunition from the police officers.

The two men who sustained various degrees of injury, have been admitted to the St. Martin’s Catholic Hospital.

The body of the deceased, identified as Attakorah, has since been deposited at the hospital’s morgue awaiting an autopsy.
