She said work was always fun with Owusu and that she last saw him on Sunday.

"My morning shifts is always fun with him around and he knows his job so well. When he takes his break, he would ask for a meat pie and a bottle of mineral to push it down then back to his motor bike.

"I will never forget the day you asked me to blue tooth that gospel song 'He has given me Victory' by Eben onto your phone and asked me to use it as your ringing tone...............Master Owusu!!!!!," she wrote.

Margaret said Owusu was unarmed when the robbers attacked him and that they shot him three times, despite his desperate pleas for them to spare his life.

"He begged you two for his life to be spared but as wickedness flowed in your heart, you shot him thrice......... Oh no!!! He is gone.......... I will forever miss you Master Owusu. I will miss riding on your motor bike, this very white one I am sitting on and these photos will keep reminding me of you... I can't stop the tears," she wrote.

Meanwhile, police have announced a GHc10,000 reward for anyone who provides information leading to the arrest of the robbers.
