A Kumasi-based road engineer with Joeshobs Construction Limited,
Emmanuel Owusu Antwi, has been shot in the head by
suspected armed robbers. The robbery incident happened
on Thursday evening at about 10:pm at Buokrom in the
Ashanti Region while returning home from work.
“In the process, he was shot from the screen hitting his
head and they quickly pulled him down from the
vehicle and drove away the Toyota Prado Land Cruiser
with registration number GS: 4031-20,” he narrated.
He added: “With the support of his family and other
neighbours he was quickly rushed to the Komfo Anokye
Teaching Hospital where he is currently receiving medical
attention in a life-threatening condition. Currently,
he can’t speak we are hoping he will survive.”
The victim is a senior road engineer working on the
Ahwia Nkwanta Obuasi road.
Meanwhile, the Ashanti Police command has located the
land Cruiser Prado which was abandoned in Kumasi.
The family of the victim has been contacted to submit the
spare key of the vehicle for the vehicle to be moved from
where it was located. Last year, the victim suffered a similar
robbery attack where his Toyota Hilux was stolen without a trace.
