"We got a call from a client in Amanfro and decided to meet with them." We observed two persons on motorcycles while we were driving, but we didn't pay any attention. The two men on the motorbike assaulted us as we neared our location and demanded the money in the bag. My other brother fought back, but one of the thieves persisted and pulled out a revolver, firing a warning shot. My brother had no alternative but to hand over the bag to the burglars. We had roughly four hundred thousand cedis in the bag, as well as some international currencies. "We reported the case to the Ngleshie Amanfro Police, and they arrived at the scene to begin the investigation," Alhaji Mumuni told Citi News.

According to an eyewitness, Jonathan Essel, they pondered intervening at first, but the thieves were loaded with firearms, stopping them from doing so.

“After the robbers took the bags, one of them pretended to be a police officer, and they were armed, making confrontation difficult.” “There were two guys on a motorcycle with no licence plate,” Jonathan Essel stated.
