According to Adubea, she was getting ready to start work Tuesday when she turned to see a gentleman with a gun pointed at her.

He demanded that she hands over all the money she has in the shop.

“I told him the money is in a bag behind the counter and he demanded I get it for him. He stressed that when I shout he will simply shoot me and run,” she told Joy News’ Fred Smith.

Adubea said he took the money together with her mobile phone which she was charging by then and jumped onto a waiting motorbike.

The terrified lady said although some few shops owners were opened for business, no one saw the robbery happening until she shouted after the incident.

“Nobody was able to chase them because by the time I raised the alarm it was too late to do so,” she said.

The police visited the shop and commenced with their investigations.
