The bus driver, Etiene, told the host of the programme, Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin, about the situation and revealed that the thieves they were allegedly utilizing had large weapons, machetes, and enormous sticks.

He disclosed that a few of the travelers were rendered unconscious due to insufficient cash on them.

“The men with guns had set up a barricade to prevent cars from approaching from either side of the street. I observed roughly four passenger cars that the bandits had pulled over. Then they started demanding our valuables and asked us to come down.

When a woman on a sprinter bus refused to show the robbers where her money was, they severely beat her. The bus driver described how the robbers assaulted her with large sticks and a machete, and some of them also struck her with a revolver, injuring her.

However, the driver disclosed that the alleged armed robbers ran into a nearby thicket as they heard a police siren in the distance.
