An eye witness explained that when they embark on such campaigns and it is late, they try to find a place to eat before they continue their journey.

On their way around 11 pm on Thursday, they saw that the road ahead of them was blocked so their driver decided to slow down while holding the view that there may be an accident scene ahead of them.

“The campaign coordinator for the area was the one leading with his motorcycle so we saw that he had been stopped by the robbers, when we moved a step further, we saw that they were with guns. Ekow Quansah Hayford was seated at the front seat of the vehicle then he began to scream ‘armed robbers, armed robbers’, so he asked, ‘What do we do?’”, the eyewitness recalled.
