The incident is reported to have happened at Sakaman junction, a suburb of Dansoman in Accra.

One of the suspected thieves died on the spot, while the other has been taken to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital for treatment.

“At first, we didn’t know that they were armed robbers or something like that… the car hit them and they fell on the road. One died on the spot, and the other one was wounded seriously lying in the middle of the road,” an eyewitness, Richard Abbey, is quoted as saying.

He explained that it was after the accident, when the man whose bag had been snatched, took notice of the suspected thieves.

According to him, the people around begun to suspect that they were robbers after the man identified them.

“One person came and he saw his bag on the ground where the people were, and he said the people on the ground took his bag so people were suspecting that they may be armed robbers. Police have come and taken them, and they are going to do their investigations,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Odorkor Police has indicated that investigations are currently ongoing regarding the matter.
