Two people are feared dead while five others are critically injured in a gun battle between the Police and armed robbers at Abossey-Okine, a suburb in Accra.
An eyewitness who spoke to Starrfmonline.com narrated that the three heavily armed men successfully robbed a Forex Bureau at Abossey Okine but started firing into a crowd at the popular spare parts hub after an alarm was raised by the Forex Bureau attendant in a bid to escape with their booty.
The robbers shot dead the Forex Bureau attendant and injured five others.
But the Police who arrived at the scene after an emergency call engaged the robbers in a gun battle critically injuring one of the robbers and arresting the other two.
According to Starr FM’s Prince Boakye, the robbers were chased by the Police and workers of Abossey Okine to the SIC office near Royal House Chapel on the Circle-Kaneshie road where two of the robbers were eventually arrested.
Reports indicate that the wounded robber is fighting for his life.
The other injured persons have been rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.
