A shop offering financial Service, CSSL Enterprise, was robbed of over 140 thousand cedis in the afternoon of Tuesday, June 1 at Buokrom Estate Junction in Kumasi.
One person, Collins Dapaah has sustained severe injuries from gunshots.
According to one of the ladies held hostage, the robbers shot into the roof three times as they requested for the money they had on them.
Charity Kambasiba explains one of them stood in front of the shop and the other came in attacking one of the clients.
The armed robber later held them hostage in one corner of the shop demanding the money.
“We were attending to a customer when a fair tall man entered and held the customer. We thought they were about to fight. But it turned out to be a robbery. He then commanded everyone to lie down and he took all the money”, Charity narrates the incident amidst tears.
One of the staff who spotted danger early, was able to make her way to the washroom, placing a phone call to a neighbour, Collins Dapaah for help.
Gertrude Acquah explains one of the two heard her but was unable to find her hideout.
Collins who attempted to go in to help the staff was shot at the entrance of the shop.
