Gang attacks Adukrom residents in Kumasi
A group of armed men has allegedly attacked residents of Adukrom in Kumasi, looting shops and snatching mobile phones and unspecified amount of money from their victims at gunpoint.
The incident, which occurred about 8.30 p.m. on Sunday, saw many people running for cover as the masked young men fired gunshots indiscriminately and brandished machetes.
One person was reported to have received injuries but that is yet to be confirmed.
A resident, Umar Sulemana, told graphic.com.gh that the armed men could be part of gangsters from Asawasi and Aboabo who continued to terrorise residents of Adukrom and nearby suburbs.
According to him, the armed men, some of whom wore masks, started shooting in the area, resulting in terrified residents running for cover.
In the midst of the shooting, the armed men looted shops and attacked anyone they met, taking away cash and mobile phones.
The attack continued for about 30 minutes before the police came in, by which time the attackers had disappeared.
Confirming the incident, the Asawasi District Police Commander, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Jacob Kumi, told this paper that no one had been arrested.
