How the RoboSniper works
The engineer said the device first sounds an alarm in an attempt to ward off the intruder before a gunfight, saying it will help the security services and security-conscious individuals.
''More often than not, security personnel at banks and other sensitive areas are targeted when there's a robbery invasion. Robo Sniper aims at taking out that risk.
''The security officer is to monitor via an inbuilt camera and command the robot to strike where necessary via a remote control system,'' he told YEN.com.gh in a WhatsApp conversation.

Still on the engineer, YEN.com.gh previously reported on the story of Ing. Emmanuel Wireko-Brobby who grew up in love but in poverty with his doting mother in Ashanti New Town in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.
His father, Edward Wireko-Brobby, and his mother, Nana Asantewaa Mainoo, separated when he was very young and had to live with his mother, who was keen on his education.
Born on May 7, 1975, the last child of five children had a healthy bond between himself, his grandmother, his mother, and other siblings.
