The Office of former First Lady, Lordina Mahama has debunked rumours that she’s been attacked and shot by armed robbers at her residence in Accra.
A story published by an online portal, with the headline "Former First Lady Lordina Mahama shot in robbery attack; robbers make away with 600,000 dollars," claims the wife of ex President John Mahama was shot twice in the leg while fleeing from the robbers on Sunday and she’s currently receiving treatment at the 37 Military Hospital, Accident and Emergency Unit.
The story added that one Chief Inspector Kwame Addai who was the leader of the patrol team that was dispatched to the crime scene told reporters that the former First Lady confirmed to him the robbers made away with a sum of $ 600,000 and GHC 130,000 which were to be deposited in her account on Monday.
But a statement from the office of the former First lady signed by Special Aide to the Former President, Joyce Bawa Mogtari, "described as falsehood the news of an attack, and claims that large sums of monies were stolen by the robbers.
"Indeed, the residence of the former first family is secured by personnel of the Ghana Police Service and National Security. Neither the Mahama Household nor the former First Lady has spoken to any police officer about a robbery that never occurred", the statement concluded.
