A young man said to be in his 30s has met his untimely death after he was attacked by armed robbers at Zokor in the Upper East region.
According to reports from local media in the region sighted by MyNewsGh.com, this is not the first of such attacks in the area and has therefore left the people in fear.
The robbers according reports attack and snatch motorbikes of their victims and those who prove stubborn are maimed or sometimes killed in the process.
A member of the community whose name is given as Atanga who spoke to the local media said the attacks are as a result of the lack of Police in the community.
“This is just one of the many attacks that have been happening on that road. There is a bridge that has collapsed on that road and so anytime one is using the road you can easily be attacked because the road is not good and there are no police officers. T
hey used to have a check point for motors but that has stopped. We need to raise this matter seriously because it is serious,” a member of the community told the media”.
