“Pray For Us, Bad System Caused This” – Armed Robbers Tell Passengers After Robbing Them




A group of armed robbers who intercepted a bus on the highway have asked passengers to remember them in prayers as their act is against their will.
According to reports, five masked armed robbers attacked a bus carrying travelers from Takoradi in the Western Region to Kumasi in the Ashanti Region of Ghana around 10:30 pm on Sunday, Feb 20.

A passenger of the bus, simply identified as Ekua narrated;

“At around 3:30 am on Monday, February 21, 2022, about five armed robbers with rifles and other weapons attacked us and made away with our monies and other belongings. All of them were wearing masks,

She added that after the robbery, the armed robbers asked them to remember them in prayers.


Ekua said: “After the robbery, they asked us to pray for them because it was not their will to stop vehicles on the highway and rob passengers of their belongings but the system has compelled them to do so.”

The driver of the vehicle said he was powerless against the armed robbers, and there was nothing he could have done to save the situation.

He said: “When I got to Fomena, I saw a driver alerting me with his light that there was danger on the road. I became confused and stopped the vehicle for about five minutes. I realised no vehicle was coming again so I decided to continue my journey.

“When I moved forward for some minutes, I saw a Sprinter bus on the road with passengers lying on the ground. This is where I realised armed robbers were on the road. There was nothing I could do again because they were very close. They attacked us and took all our monies. They took my GH¢3,400.”
