According to Chief Inspector James Henry Amoh of the Nsuta Police Station, the police had a distress call from one of the victims around 04:45 hours and they rushed to the crime scene but could not get the armed robbers.
He said the police escorted the drivers and the passengers to the Nsuta police Station where they took their statements, adding that, they were investigating the case.
Charles Kwadwo Duro, a driver of a Toyota mini bus with registration number AS 5046-15, said he was travelling from Beposo to Kumasi and after turning a curve just near a branch road leading to the Nsuta District Education Office (GES), he saw a travelling bag on the road.
He said thinking that it was a luggage from a moving vehicle, he reversed to pick it and immediately he stopped two people emerged from the bush, masked and armed with an AK 47 machine gun and a pistol, and ordered him and the passengers to get down.
He said they told them to lie down and were robbed of their money and mobile phones. He said a taxi cab and a Ford vehicle from Effiduase were also attacked. But the taxi cab managed to escape though they shot one of his tyres.
