Robbers attack passengers on Yeji road; bolt with ambulance

About seven passengers are in critical condition following a robbery attack around Jamasi near Mampong in the Ashanti Region.

The incident reportedly occurred at about 2:45 am on Friday.

The gun-wielding men robbed passengers on board several vehicles including a VIP bus with registration number AC 7419-15 travelling from Accra to Yeji and also bolted with an ambulance.

The incident unfolded when the robbers set up a roadblock.

The driver of the VIP bus shared the experience with Adom News’ Daniel Tachie, describing it as terrifying.

The driver narrated he was ascending a hill when the robbers flashed a torchlight, signaling him to stop and slowed down because he thought it was a police checkup.

“One of them pointed a gun at me, insisting I stop the bus and ordered that I opened the door which I did. They entered the bus and started shooting indiscriminately. They stole parcels which were been delivered and my money,” he narrated.

Fortunately for them, there was a police escort on board the VIP bus who engaged on a shootout with the robbers, injuring one.

Some passengers he said sustained injuries as the robbers fired through the windscreen and are on admission at the Mampong Government Hospital.
