Some commuters travelling on the Nwineso-Trabuom-Foase road in the Ashanti region have been robbed at gunpoint by men wielding AK-47 assault rifles.

On Friday morning, the robbers, numbering about six, attacked at least 10 vehicles transporting traders to Kumasi.

According to eyewitnesses, they blocked a section of the road between Nwineso Number 1 and Trabuom.

When the vehicles stopped at the barricade, they forced the commuters to lie face down and robbed them of unspecified amounts of money, mobile phones, wedding rings, and other valuable items.

“Our driver first saw a flashlight from the robbers but mistook it for an oncoming vehicle. He drove past a man who appeared to be attending to nature’s call. We then ran into a group of six young men wielding these assault rifles used by police and the military. Then, they rushed to our vehicle and demanded we hand over everything in our possession to them. One of them slapped me before he demanded I hand over my money. I trembled.

“The robbers will then rush to attack passengers anytime a vehicle gets to the barricade. An old woman complained bitterly to the robbers about her aching feet, but they wouldn’t budge. They assaulted her despite her appeals,” one of the victims narrated.

She continued that the robbers assaulted the men, stripped one female victim naked and caused injuries to others, including one driver.

This incident is one of many robbery cases on the road in recent times.

A commuter was recently killed by a group of armed robbers who mounted barricades on the road.
