Suspected armed robbers have ganged raped a woman in a Tuesday dawn road attack at Boaman in the Ashanti region.
The victim, according to eyewitnesses, is receiving treatment at the Boaman health centre.
According to a driver of one of the attacked vehicles, the robbers blocked part of the road between Boaman and Kumasi and stopped vehicles heading that way.
He told Starr News his vehicle was stopped among three other vehicles, one of which had the lady who was gang raped in turns by the suspects. He said rescue came when a male passenger in one of the car managed to escape through the bush and called the police on phone.
” I was heading to Kumasi from Boaman and when I got to the spot, three other cars had been stopped already and they were taking phones and money from passengers. As they ordered us to get off our car, the lady was in the other vehicle in front of us and so they took her to the bush nearby and they started going in turns to rape her while the others watched over us.
“In the process a guy who was in the TD vehicle managed to dash into the bush and escaped. After a while we heard the Police vehicle approaching and the robbers bolted but they took our belongings away,” the driver Yaw Gavor recounted to Ultimate FM’s Isaac Bediako Justice Tuesday.
Police sources say investigations have started into the incident.
