The armed robbers trailed the deceased who was with his wife, Monica Nda to the bank where they had reportedly withdrawn some money.

As the couple drove out in their white Sonata, witnesses narrated that the miscreants, driving motorcycles, followed the victims.


Upon reaching Amanful East, a suburb of Takoradi, the victims sensed danger and parked their car in the middle of the road, but that did not deter the robbers

Witnesses said the men rushed to the occupants of the car and asked for the cash before giving each of them two bullets in the thigh.
