Images from a CCTV footage showing how the deadly armed robbery attack on a bullion van at Jamestown in Accra was carried out have been released.

In a detailed report by GhanaWeb, sighted by Mintah.net, the gang of 6 who were on three motorbikes started trailing the white Bullion Van from Abossey Okai heading towards Korle Bu Mortuary road.

At the Laterbiokoshie traffic light which is around the old Nkrumah flats and Bishop Bowers, the robbers were pretending to be Okada riders going about their normal business.

The robbers who hid their firearms took cover behind some commercial and private vehicles so as to raise no suspicion from onlookers.

The report adds that the robbers were later seen in another shot at the Korle Bu Junction traffic light branching towards the direction of the Van which was heading towards Jamestown.

However, at Adedenkpo, the Bullion Van took an unusual route where the robbers took advantage to execute their strategy.

In what looked like an action movie, one of the bikers quickly drove past the bullion van to stop at the intersection while the other drew closer to the van.

The report continued that the robbers later fired warning shots to scare people away before shooting to kill the police officer in the front seat.

At this point, the six robbers seized and raided the van robbing it of its cash contents.

Afua Badu, a lady who tried to raise an alarm of the robbery attack was later shot dead by one of the robbers.

The robbers escaped the scene shooting indiscriminately into the sky as they drove towards the Korle Bu route.
