I hope robberies are not politically motivated - Rawlings

The former President’s message comes a day after a Lebanese businessman was shot dead in Tema after he had gone to the Bank to withdraw over GHc200, 000 for his company.

The former President, who also doubles as the founder of the biggest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) isn't ruing out mischief.

He took to twitter to express this sentiment. He said, "Let us hope the recent robbery and killings is downright plain robbery and not a politically motivated action from within or without, calculated to undermine those in charge of the security machinery in order to pave the way for certain parochial ambitions."

Accra and certain parts of the country have been rife with robbery activities since over the last month.
