The Ghana Police patrol team have arrested a man who attacked a Nissan Pathfinder driver with registration number GE-8088-11 on the GIMPA- Fiesta Royale road in Accra for attempted robbery and other charges.
According to the police, the man smashed the vehicle door glass with a big stone and attempted to escape into a nearby bush when the driver drew the attention of police officers on patrol on that stretch.
However, luck eluded him and was apprehended by the police. He is currently in police custody pending due processes.
Similar incident occurred when a Ghanaian Facebook user who goes by the name Sparrow GH took to social media to warn Ghanaians to beware of plying the Achimota-GIMPA road in Accra.
According to him, the road which serves as a shortcut for many staying in Madina, Legon and GIMPA areas has become a hotspot for robbers who snatch cars from citizens.
Narrating his ordeal after armed robbers attacked him but failed to collect his car from him, Sparrow said the incident happened around 1am where masked men crossed his car with a motorbike.
He explained that the gesture looked surreal but he managed to maneuver his way around them which eventually led to one of the bikers shooting his car to prevent him from escaping.
Fortunately, the bullet didn’t hit him but smashed his rear car glass which sent him off speeding the more to save his life.
