A gang of eight notorious armed robbers wearing masks with shotguns and cutlasses attacked passengers travelling from the Volta region to Donkokrom, a town in the Afram Plains North District.
The incident clearly occurred at Apeabra – Asempaneye portion of the Donkokrom to Amamkeakrom.
According to Yaw Vidjei, a former assemblyman for Donkorkrom Electoral Area, numerous passengers were attacked.
He said the robbers shot at the first vehicle but the driver failed to stop after which they grabbed a motorbike which was following the vehicle to mount a road blockage before robbing other vehicles among gunshots which hit a 50-year-old passenger.
A Hyundai H200 with registration number GT 7615-10 was shot several times destroying the windscreen while the occupants were robbed.
The injured passenger has since been admitted at the Donkokrom Presbyterian Hospital for treatment.
