The New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary aspirant for the Ledzokuku constituency, Dr. Okoe Boye has indicated that he was attacked at gun point at his residence this dawn.

Narrating the incident to Citi News, Dr. Boye said about three gentlemen who were holding acid and guns broke into his residence around 1 am and stole about GHC 700 and other items.

“Last night we actually went to do some house to house campaign so I got home around 11pm in the night. After the campaign, I went home, had my bath, took something and slept but around 1: 50am, I was awoken from my sleep by a loud noise… my door had been broken into pieces and then three gentlemen with masks entered the room. I was disoriented because I was sleeping. …They asked me for my wedding ring and they also took about GHC 700 away”, he said.

The robbers, according to him, also broke into his sister-in-law’s apartment and stole some items as well. He said one of the robbers instructed the rest not to harm anyone when he told them he was a medical officer.

“They were aggressive so I told them I am a medical officer. Luckily one of the gentlemen who was going through my bag saw a stethoscope and immediately he realised that, he apologised and told the other guys not to harm anybody”, he said.

Adding that he, “made a few calls before they [robbers] left so the Police arrived but they came late- when the robbers had fled.”

According to him, this is the second time he had suffered an armed robbery attack.
