Remember Us In Prayer – Armed Robbers Plead After Robbing A VIP Bus
After attacking over 40 people onboard the GT 5795-16 bus, five armed robbers wearing masks and wielding firearms and other weapons begged passengers to remember them in their prayers.
The bus was reportedly traveling from Takoradi in the Western Region to Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, according to reports.
According to Ekua, a bus passenger, the bus left the Abenbebon Station in Apremdo, Takoradi at around 10:30 p.m. on Sunday.
“Around 3:30 a.m. on Monday, February 21, 2022, about five armed robbers using rifles and other weapons attacked us and stole our money and other valuables. They were all wearing masks,” she explained.
She went on to say that following the robbery, the armed robbers begged them to remember them in their prayers.
“They requested us to pray for them after the heist because it was not their intention to stop vehicles on the highway and rob passengers of their things, but the system forced them to do so,” she continued.
Another young man claimed that armed bandits grabbed his luggage, which contained GH8,500.
