A Lebanese man has been shot dead shortly after he went to withdraw cash from Zenith Bank at the Tema Industrial Area Wednesday morning.
The deceased, believed to be in his early 50s was trailed by armed robbers after he had left the bank at about 11:30 am in his Toyota Corolla vehicle.
An eye witness told Myjoyonline.com the deceased’s car was blocked by the armed gang who then shot him and bolted with an amount believed to be 200,000 cedis, Myjoyonline has learnt.
The deceased 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.
