They observed, armed robbers have been terrorizing them and their customers in the area anytime they set-up for business.

Speaking to Abusua News’s Osei Kwadwo, the traders said “armed robbers have been terrorizing us every day, they rob us of our money and because of that our customers have stopped doing business with us for fear of being robbed.”

According to the traders, the robbery activities is gradually collapsing their business.
