A 45-year-old motor rider, Quarshie Agbagba, has sustained gunshot wounds in his leg during a robbery operation.

This was at a time Mr Agbagba was travelling to Blekente, a suburb of Yeji in the Pru East District at the Bono East Region.

The victim narrated to Adom News he bumped into the robbers who had mounted a roadblock to begin their operation on the stretch.

However, all attempts to pull over after the robbers stopped him were not successful due to a brake failure.
