One person has been confirmed dead after gunmen attacked the Alabar Market in the Ashanti Region today, Friday, October 30, 2020.
Three others were wounded during the attack and have been rushed to the Manhyia Government Hospital.
The deceased has been identified as Anwar Hussain, who died on arrival at the hospital.
Sources at the Manhyia district hospital say the three others are in stable condition.
According to eyewitnesses, the six gunmen on motorbikes demanded monies from the traders at Alabar.
The robbers made away with an unspecified amount of money.
“They approached me and told me to give all the cash I had so I opened my safe and gave them what I had,” one of the robbery victims said to Citi News.
