Armed robbers mount blockade next to police barrier; rob passengers at Nweneso

Armed robbers are reported to have mounted a blockade adjacent to a police barrier at Nweneso No.1 in the Atwima Kwanwoma District of the Ashanti Region in order to rob passengers in commercial vehicles.

 

The valuables of some passengers were robbed according to a eye witness’s account.

 

The locals of the village recalled that there have been at least four instances of this kind of thing happening so far in 2018.

 

In order to facilitate the heist mission, the armed guys used a broken-down saloon car and some logs to obstruct the road leading from Nweneso to Foase.

 

It has been reported by a few eyewitnesses that a faulty FIAT saloon car was seen being towed by a KIA truck a few hours before the tragedy.

 

The blockage resulted in the detainment of four buses, all of which were carrying people.

 

The victims’ cash and mobile phones were stolen while they were held at gunpoint by the perpetrators.

 

The preceding event was related by Kwaku Badu, who was the driver of one of the buses.

 

Residents report that there have been no less than four thefts so far this year.

 

As a direct response to these instances, the local community has built a shelter near the police barrier to assist with nighttime tasks.

 

The spot where the incident took place is around ten meters away from the shelter.

 

A number of the community members are unhappy with the work that the police are doing.

 

Checks conducted by www.coversourcenews.com have found that insufficient personnel has resulted in the police occasionally having to deploy a single officer at the barrier.

 

At the time of the robbery, it was not obvious whether there had been any workers on duty.

 

According to the results of further investigations, there is only one vehicle assigned to patrol the Fomena District, and it is prone to developing defects.

 

The roads are in bad shape; they are rough and dirty.

 

Despite having been granted the contract, it has not yet made any significant progress.

 

The police report that they have not yet received an official complaint, despite the fact that an officer was present at the location earlier.
