The deceased, believed to be in his early 50s, works with Delta Agro, a soap-manufacturing company.

The daylight robbery comes barely 24 hours after a similar incident at the North Industrial Area in Accra Tuesday morning.

Four armed men stormed the Royal Motors at about 8:00am and fired guns. They stole the company’s cash and run off with the CCTV recording.

Wednesday’s incident will heighten the growing fear and insecurity in the country despite assurances by the police.
