What one would do in a case of armed robbers chasing him or her is not something you can immediately tell unless you are faced with a hapless situation.
For actress Salma Mumin, she could not think of anything better than jumping off a storey building. The actress told Nana Romeo in an interview that she had to do this one time in order to save her life.
The actress and fashion entrepreneur need not tell us how frightened that was for us to know how harrowing it would be.
Salma says when it happened, she was the only one in the house and for fear that she would be assaulted by them, she risked hurting herself by escaping than sitting, idle and dreading and waiting for them to find and do callous things to her.
“I once jumped off a storey building because of armed robbers.”
She told Nana Romeo that she prays she eventually forgets what happened that day because it has been something on her mind for a long time now.
Unlike before when armed robbery was done late at night or at the break of dawn, in today’s Ghana, the narrative has changed and these robbers have taken to robbing in broad daylight with no fear of being caught.
For the past weeks, we have heard stories of robbery done in broad daylight with casualties left behind. Recently, one happened at a Forex Bureau in Osu.
The one that is making headlines is the one that happened just a few days ago— the bullion van incident where a policeman was shot dead in the process.
Another lady minding her own business in her shop was caught in the crossfire, also shot and she bled to death. At this point, we cannot stress hard enough on the need for the government and the police to do something effective about security as it has become imperative.
