Eyewitnesses told Asaase News the victim had just gone to the bank for transaction when the incident occurred

Four armed robbers reportedly shot a man at Asafo Market and made away with an unspecified amount of money on Wednesday.

Eyewitnesses told Asaase News the victim had just gone to the bank for transaction when the incident occurred.

The victim sustained gunshot wounds as the robbers fired indiscriminately until they were out of sight.

Speaking to Asaase News, the assemblyman for  Asafo electoral area, Ernest Okai said the assembly has initiated steps to establish a policepost in the area.

“I am very much surprised, this is the  first time I am hearing of such incident,” he said. “In the meantime, we engaging the leadership of those operating cold stores within the market to see how best we can get a police post here.”

“Going forward, I have written a letter to the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) lobbying for a permanent police station, they have approved that and it’s in our action plan for 2021/2022, we have done all the necessary drawings awaiting approval from the police.”

“If we get the approval, we are going to kickstart the project and I think it is going to help solve these kind of issues. We have been having petty robberies, but this is a major case we have recorded so far,” Okai said.
