Residents of Tafo Ahenbronum in the Ashanti Region have said they are suffering from armed robbery attacks by some ‘ghetto boys’ in the community especially at night.
In an exclusive interview with Aniwaba.com’s Ashanti Regional correspondent Kaakyire Prince, the residents said that due to the nature of poor roads in their area, drivers find it difficult commuting with ease giving room for the robbers to attack passengers.
“The potholes that dot the stretch make the vehicles move with the pace of a tortoise and it is this that these armed robbers take advantage to attack. They are pestering us here,” a resident who pleaded anonymity said.
The residents added that a pit on the shoulder of the road also serves as a hiding place for the robbers. This, Aniwaba.com learnt, the robbers after snatching valuable items from their victims run to hide in the pit.
The armed robbery activities, residents said, have been reported to the Assembly Member of the suburb to be addressed.
