According to an eyewitness, Fatawu Bonu, the robbers are Fulani extraction.
Speaking to TV3 News, he accounted that the robbers blocked the Ejura-Mampong road at Woraso and looked like Police when his bus was approaching from afar.
They wielded assault rifles and flashed a light that I should stop. At first, I thought they were Police until I got closer then I realised they are Fulani guys. They took my ¢500 and asked me to lie down,” Fatawu Bonu narrated.
Another victim, Derrick Opare revealed that the robbers shot sporadically into his bus before getting on board to rob the passengers.
Later after the robbers had left, the driver and the passengers who had been stunned realised that the 8-year-old girl was hit by a bullet.
