Two workers of a Bakery at Bomso, in Kumasi are in critical condition at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital following an attack by gunmen.
According to Myjoyonline, Margaret Oforiwaa and Kwame Adjei bled profusely on Thursday night from gunshot wounds resulting from an earlier confrontation between a worker and a gang member. What appeared a normal working night turned bloody when three gunmen wielding AK 47 assault rifles and pistols started shooting sporadically at workers on duty.
The armed gang had returned to the shop to retaliate an attack on one of its members who had a verbal confrontation with one of the workers. The disagreement turned into fisticuffs. But after the two were separated, the man whose identity is unknown returned in the evening in the company of his colleagues, to carry through a threat to retaliate.
They chased the defenseless workers in darkness and shot two workers and a customer at close range. Margaret was shot in the upper chest while Kwame was hit in the thigh. The two who bred profusely are said to have been rushed to the KNUST Hospital and Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in an unconscious state, only for health personnel there to resuscitate them.
The gang later attacked a family nearby. Meanwhile, KNUST District Police Command has launched investigations into the attack after visiting the crime scene last night and this morning.
