Fear has gripped residents of Ankwa – Doboro, near Nsawam in the Eastern Region, after increasing cases of armed robbery in the community during the night.
According to residents, unknown men armed with sharp objects including machetes, have been chasing them and sometimes break into their houses to rob them of their belongings when darkness falls.
Just last night, a banker with the ADB Bank, Madam Vida Ankomah, was attacked by robbers, who stormed her house when she was about to leave for work and virtually ransacked the car’s parts including the mirrors, the tape and windscreen wipers.
Some residents also spoke of their ordeal to Adom News. According to them, the Doboro toll booth-Doboro News Site stretch of road is the most dangerous.
Meanwhile, Superintendent Kankam Boadu, District Police Commander of Nsawam has assured residents that all is being done to bring the robbers to book.
