Reports of some staff of the Kejetia branch of CAL Bank held hostage by some armed robbers has been described as “false alarm” by sources within the Ghana Police Service.
On the evening of Thursday, July 1, reports were rife that some four armed robbers were inside the bank with staff as military officers surround the building in a rescue mission.
The presence of the officers around the bank was what was misconstrued as hostage of the staff, our source said.
Ashantibiz gathered that the whole incident started when four dreadlocked men on motorbikes were seen hovering around the bank in the late afternoon.
Suspicion was then raised among onlookers, who decided to inform the police.
The Anti-Robbery Unit of the Ghana Police Service promptly got to the scene but after combing the area, they found no body.
A source within the Unit told Ashantibiz that there was no evidence that the men on the motorbikes were robbers.
