The increasing incidents of armed robbery in the Bono East region, particularly in the Pru East District is very worrying as a tilapia seller has reportedly been butchered by these heartless people.

Adomonline gathered that on Sunday at about 5:30 pm, the deceased, Mr. James Naah, was on his way to deliver orders by his customers when the robbers pounced on him and fatally butchered him.

Confirming the incident on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem Monday, Yaw Mensah, brother of the deceased said: “Some of his customers ordered for tilapia which he went to deliver, but after he had left the house for 30 minutes, we received a call that he had been killed by some armed robbers”.

According to him, his brother was found lying dead in a pool of blood with his clothes torn apart.

Mr Naah’s body has been sent to the St Mathias Hospital at Yeji, pending police investigation.

The deceased was a former employee of the now defunct GN Savings and Loans who later ventured into tilapia sales after losing his job.
