A forex trader has been shot dead by three unknown assailants at Alabar, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
Eyewitness reports indicate that the victim, Hashim Salif, was attacked by some unknown assailants around 2 pm on Sunday afternoon.
The young man, believed to be in his early thirties, was reported to have been engaged in his usual business at Alabar when three gentlemen riding on a motorbike forcefully tried to take his bag containing a cash amount believed to be GH¢10,000.
The deceased, after resisting, got shot in the left side of his chest by one of the robbers.
The rider of an auto-rickshaw, who was near the incident, conveyed Hashim Salif to the Manhyia Government Hospital.
“I was from Suame Roundabout, [I] reached Ashtown, so I see people, they are running and I ask what happened, and they are telling me (that)some armed robbers shoot one man and I asked what happened and they said they don’t know but the man is (one of) those who change the foreign money, when I reached there, one of my colleagues helped me to bring him to the Manhyia Government Hospital,” he told Citi News.
Hashim Salif was confirmed dead at the hospital a few minutes after efforts to resuscitate him proved futile.
He is expected to be buried in line with the demands of Islamic custom.
