According to the driver of the VIP bus, the armed robbers signaled him to stop when he was descending a hill. Initially, he thought it was a police checkpoint little did he know that it was a checkpoint mounted by the armed robbers.

“One of them pointed a gun at me, insisting I stop the bus and ordered that I open the door which I did. They entered the bus and started shooting indiscriminately. They stole parcels which had been delivered and my money,” he narrated.

According to one of the passengers, there was a police escort on board the VIP bus who engaged in a shootout with the robbers, thereby injuring one.

Passengers who sustained various degrees of injuries have been admitted to the Mampong Government Hospital.
