Six suspected armed robbers invaded the Benab Filling Station at Gomoa Ojobi on the Accra-Cape Coast Highway at the weekend and robbed the station and customers who were at the station to buy fuel.
The masked wearing robbers invaded the station and started shooting indiscriminately, according to a report filed by Accra-based Adom FM.
The robbers made away with mobile phones, the station’s mobile money phones and an undisclosed amount of money.
Police sources said after the robbers succeeded with their operation, they attempted to snatch a Range Rover from a driver identified as Michael Kojo Afful who was heading towards Accra.
According to the police, the driver exhibited an act of bravery and knocked down one of them, killing him on the spot.
The deceased, believed to be a Fulani, according to information gathered, faced the driver violently with a gun.
The accomplices, however, managed to pull their colleague from the road and took all items on him and fled into a bush near Sakom Stone Quarry.
Meanwhile, some customers who were also robbed said they thought that was going to be the end of their lives due to the violent shooting.
Gomoa Dominase Police visited the scene and took the lifeless body to the Winneba Trauma and Specialist Hospital for preservation.
No arrest has been made yet.
