Mr. Attakura Many Aaron Joseph, an employee of the Atwima Mponua Rural Bank, exhibited great bravery when three armed robbers armed with shotguns and pinch bars invaded his home in the early hours of Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018.
The three robbers went to Mr. Aaron Joseph's house at number 32, Block C, in New Sensu Toase. After scaling the property walls, they reportedly used a pinch par to pry open the first metal security gate.
After opening the first security gate, they entered the corridor and were about to break into the "guard frame" when the dog started barking. The robbers fired two shots in an attempt to kill the dog, and ended up waking up Mr. Attakura and other members of the house in the process.
Seeing the three armed assailants on his veranda, Mr. Attakura took aim at one of the men with his own single barreled weapon and fired, hitting him in the chest and killing him instantly.
With one of them gunned down, the remaining two realized that they were not dealing with an unarmed abode and immediately fled the scene, leaving their accomplice's remains at the home.
