Presidential Staffer Robbed At Gunpoint


Presidential Staffer, Clement Apaak, has been attacked by gun-wielding robbers at his Ashaley botwe residence, Friday dawn.

The robbers made away with an amount of 7,350 Ghana cedis, a laptop, phones belonging to Apaak, his wife and brother-in-law in what the presidential staffer described as “a good loot.”

Clement Apaak, has confirmed the Hollywood-style robbery in an interview with The Herald and also the Accra-based Asempa FM.

According to him, his brother-in-law was left bleeding after he was smacked with the back of a gun.

Describing how the incident occurred, Clement Apaak said, he retired to bed late Thursday night after he appeared on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana programme.

He said around 3:00 am Friday, he heard a loud bang on his wall and woke up abruptly, only to find the robbers busily breaking into his rooms.

He said, he quickly decided to lock the bedroom door, but the robbers forced it open.

According to him, two of the robbers entered, one wielding a gun and ordered them to bring all the monies in their possession.

He said, he quickly dipped his hand into his pocket and gave them 350 cedis, but the robbers were not content with it as they demanded for more.

Clement Apaak said, he then lied to the robbers that more money was in his wallet in another room, so he could manoeuvre and defend but the wife knew what he was about to do so she quickly intervened by telling the robbers that more money was in another bag.

The bag contained an amount of GH¢7,050 which Apaak said was meant for an official project.

They made away with the money together with other personal belongings, Apaak said, adding that his brother-in-law was also attacked in his bedroom by one of the robbers, who also wielded a gun.

Clement Apaak said one person has been arrested in connection with the attack.

An eye witnesses told The Herald that two of his neighbours namely Junior pastor and one Lawrice, who tried to raise alarm over the robbery were shot and have since been rushed to the hospital.

A source at the Madina Divisional Police Command has told The Herald that an investigation has been launched into the dastardly act and the robbers would soon be brought to book.

The Herald learnt that the Greater Accra Regional Police Commander, Mr. Christian Tetteh Yohenu, visited the scene and gave the instruction for immediate investigations into the act.
