My neighbour was shot by armed robbers – Bridget Otoo

My neighbour was shot by armed robbers a day after reporting a robbery case to the police – Bridget Otoo

Ghanaian broadcaster Bridget Otoo has lashed out her anger at the Ghana Police after her neighbour who is a carpenter was shot by armed robbers.

According to the renowned journalist, the carpenter is the breadwinner of his family who hustles just to make a decent living for his family.

She stated that the attack on the man comes after he had reported a robbery case to the Ghana Police earlier.

She explained that even after her neighbour lodged the case at the police station, none of them followed him to the scene of the robbery or commenced an investigation into the matter.

Her tweet reads: “My neighbour reported to the Devtraco @GhPoliceService in community 25 a week ago that thieves had broken into their home. The police never went to check the scene. Today at 2:30 am the armed robbers came back and shot the man in the family, he’s at the emergency now,” 

“Their daughter works for me. This is really tragic, they are a poor family who are taking care of someone’s home @GhPoliceService Justice shouldn’t be about who has money and who doesn’t. You must pursue all cases even when they are poor.”

“Perhaps if the @GhPoliceService had gone there when they first reported, they would have advised them on what to do but they let this poor family face this alone! I pray the man survives his gunshot wounds since it’s on his face. I’m really terrified, sad and heartbroken by this.
