He said at about 0630hours in the morning, the police got information from one Abubakar Mahama, a security man at the Total Filling Station that at about 230hours, a white Toyota Hilux pick-up with seven men on board, pulled up at the station wielding cutlasses and a gun.

ASP Nyamekye said the security man told the police that the robbers broke into the Filling Station Supermarket and destroyed their computers, ostensibly in search of money.

Mr. Kwame Oppong, driver of a fuel tanker which was at the filling station to discharge fuel, was also attacked in the process, and an unconfirmed amount of Ghc2,000 was taken from him.
