Police in the Northern Region are on a manhunt for some suspected armed robbers who went on a shooting spree at the Yendi market on Tuesday night.
Some armed robbers on Tuesday evening attacked some Traders at Yendi.
They also reportedly unleashed mayhem on a businessman and made away with his money.
The shooting also resulted in injuries to several other persons including a young boy at the scene.
The injured persons are currently on admission at the Yendi hospital where they are undergoing treatment.
Divisional Crimes Officer for Yendi, ASP Addae Happy Micheal, said they are working hard to get the culprits apprehended.
“We dispatched policemen to the place. The police got there only to be told that two unidentified men on a motorbike attacked a businessman and took all his unspecified amount of money away. He is a businessman and exchanges money. He was shot in one leg and then another person was also shot in his waist. They are all at the hospital receiving treatment.”
“They couldn’t tell us the identity of the armed robbers because they were masked. We are on the ground investigating whether we can arrest the perpetrators,” he added.
There have been several robberies in the country in recent times.
Some robbers in the first week of August 2018 shot some police officers and civilians at Dansoman in Accra.
Three out of the four police personnel were treated and discharged from the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, but others were left in a critical condition.
The officers were shot when they went to the area in response to an alert that a house in the area was being robbed.
