Robbers steal ‘mobile money’

Four armed robbers on Saturday, attacked a mobile money dealer at his shop at the Kalpohin Estate, a suburb of Tamale, and took away GH¢26,000.00.

The robbers, while bolting away with the booty, shot at three people including the mobile money dealer, whose name was given as Abdallah, believed to be in his late 40s.

According to eye-witnesses, two of the robbers were waiting on two stand-by motorbikes whiles the other two, wielding AK47 rifles, entered the shop and demanded access to a bag containing the money, which was given to them.

While the armed robbers were about leaving the shop, they fired a bullet, which hit the stomach of the mobile money dealer.

A customer, who was coming to the shop, raised an alarm and the robbers also shot at the lower part of his chest.

The armed robbers then started shooting indiscriminately and a barber, (whose name was given as Foster, believed to be in his early 30s) who rushed to attend to the customer, was also shot at the waist.

The armed robbers jumped onto the two motorbikes that were on stand-by and sped off.

A team of police officers from the Criminal Investigations Department of the Tamale District Police Command visited the crime scene to pick evidence of the incident.

The victims are responding to treatment at the Tamale Teaching Hospital.
