Two persons were shot whilst several others sustained various degrees of injuries in an armed robbery attack on a bus on the Atebubu-Kwame Danso stretch of road in the Sene District of Brong Ahafo region.

The Atebubu Divisional Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Joseph Atsu Dzinaku, who confirmed the incident to Adam News said the driver and the passengers refused police escort despite the upsurge in crime on the roads.

This he said could be the reason behind the attack since the robbers realized that they had no protection while driving on the highway at dawn.

He said the two passengers who were shot by the armed robbers are currently receiving treatment at the Mampong Government Hospital.

Meanwhile none of the robber have been arrested, investigations are ongoing, Chief Superintendent Joseph Atsu Dzinaku added.
