A daylight robbery at Pigfarm in Accra on Wednesday afternoon

has left many residents worried after an unidentified

man was shot in the stomach.

Checks by JoyNews’ Maxwell Agbagba revealed that two robbers

on a motorbike were in pursuit of the 34-year-old victim

who had in his possession a backpack.

roundabout and then fired five warning shots to disperse persons

present as they try to seize his backpack.

After some seconds of struggle, the armed robbers fired at

the victim and made away with his backpack.

A witness, who was still present when JoyNews arrived at the scene,

stated that the victim pleaded with the robbers, saying he had

no valuable in the backpack, but his plea fell on

deaf ears and they shot him to the ground.
