Yesterday, June 1st, 2021, robbers who were heavily armed attacked the Community Consult Limited at Buokrom, a suburb of Kumasi, shot a customer and left with a huge sum of money during working hours.
According to an interview with a resident on Pure Fm, the robbers stormed the bank during working hours and ordered the bank staff to hand them all the money they have.

While he was about to enter, he realized that there was a robbery going on and decided to call the police. Unfortunately, he was shot.
According to the police, an amount of over GHc 100,000 was taken from the bank and some valuables were also taken from the customers and tellers too.
