‘The police were just sitting unconcerned’ - Legon Cities IT Manager laments robbery incident

Published on: 03 November 2023

The IT Manager of Legon Cities has recounted a harrowing encounter with armed robbers following their match against FC Samartex in the 2023/24 Ghana Premier League season.

After a challenging away game in Samreboi that ended in a 3-0 defeat, the Legon Cities team bus fell victim to an armed robbery in Kwanfifi, a town located along the Bibiani to Kumasi highway.

In an interview with Asempa FM, the IT Manager, known as Super, revealed that the robbers forcibly halted the bus in the middle of the road.

They then ordered everyone to lie down on the ground while they proceeded to rob them of their possessions.

“You can’t raise your head but were like four and they made us lie on the ground and took all our monies up to 9000 cedis, 11 phones, bags with boots and my laptop. They hit me and one of our players.”

According to him, they were shocked to meet a police barrier three minutes away from where the robbery happened and yet they never came to their rescue.

“Less than three minutes we saw a police barrier and they were just sitting down. So our driver furiously asked them why they failed to act despite hearing gunshots. But they said nothing, so some of us thought they connived with the robbers, they made no comment,” he said.
