It was gathered that a three-man gang allegedly attacked a Point of Sale operator along Erepa Road on Wednesday May 26, and made away with undisclosed sum of money.

According to an eyewitness, the suspected robbers were trying to escape with the stolen money but ran out of luck when they had an accident with the tricycle used for the operation.

After the accident which occurred near the Isaac Boro Express Way axis at Custom road, Biogbolo, the said robbers fired gunshots to scare away the mob, who, however, overpowered them.
