Police officer robbed in Accra

A police officer has been robbed by some masked armed men and made away with GH₵80,000 in Accra.

The daylight robbery took place on Wednesday on the N1 highway when the robbers ambushed the police officer and fired warning shots.

According to Adomonline, the police officer said the two masked men fired warning shots before bolting with his bag containing money.

The shocker, he noted, was when one of the armed robbers returned and demanded the key to his motorbike which he readily gave out.
