Security officers robbed after attempting to protect others from being robbed


Security officers protecting contractors at the ongoing Ofankor to Nsawam project have been robbed by some armed men.

The robbery which took place at the Ofankor railway bridge section of the highway targeted night security officers and other persons who were on the site at the time.

The matter has since been reported to the Ofanfor Police Station.

Abdulai Mahama, a Senior Project Manager has disclosed that the early Sunday morning, May 26, 2024 incident, robbed the officers of their mobile phones and other items.

He explained that the security officers had attempted a confrontation with the robbers when when they (armed robbers) attempted stealing from a Burkina-Faso bound broken-down truck on the road.

He also noted that the Ofankor to Nsawam junction road was often the scene of robbery incidents but they had reported the incident to the police and have been assured of investigating it.

“The head of internal security called me that apparently one of Burkina or the foreign trucks had developed a fault in that particular section. And as usual when there are some of these faulty vehicles, these robbers make it a target to be able to go and get what is in those trucks.

“So, one of the security men informed us that around 12:45 am, a Camry salon car, Toyota Camry, it is a black vehicle, got to that location and approached the security.

“In the exchange of words, they tied the two security men…they attacked two other men who were in the car and took away their money and some phones and then bolted.

“This has been happening on the stretch anytime we have some of these faulty vehicles along the Ofankor stretch. But we have reported to the Ofankor police and they have assured us that they are commencing an investigation.”
