Man shot in the stomach during daylight robbery at Pigfarm
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.
According to a witness, the robbers chased the victim to the Pigfarm
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.

“I saw some motorbikes approaching. I heard sounds like gunshot
but I thought they were from the motorbikes.
The robbers tried to take the backpack from the man.
“He resisted, jumped from his motorbike and opened the bag.
He told them he carried no valuables but they still shot
him and took the backpack,” he said.
The witness noted that a good samaritan passing by picked up
the victim into his vehicle and headed towards the 37 Military Hospital.
The Police, after being alerted, arrived at the scene, however,
they were unable to track the robber
