After being attacked by armed robbers at Adansi Brekete in the Adansi South District of the Ashanti Region, an okada rider only identified as Jacob reportedly survived gunshots.
One of the alleged robbers, according to sources, hired an okada rider to transport him to Akim Ekyereso in the Eastern area.
The alleged robber asked the okada rider to take a different turn so he could pick up some plantains along the side of the road.
Unbeknownst to the rider, an accomplice was waiting for them on the side of the road to complete their task. When the accomplice arrived, he took out a pistol and demanded that the rider gets off the motorcycle.
He was asked by the masked robber to raise his hands so he can be searched but he refused and due to that, he was asked to choose between life and death.
The okada rider managed to run off into a nearby bush leaving his motorbike to the robbers but he took the remote to the motorbike along.
The okada rider was said to have engaged the engine of the bike using the remote whenever the suspected robbers attempted to move it away. The armed robbers then realized that the okada man is operating the motorbike remotely.
The rider then came out of the bushes to confront the robbers and in the process engaged in a physical fight with them which resulted in the removal of the mask of one of the assailants.
This enraged the suspect, who reportedly fired shots at him, but the rider, who is rumored to be be equipped with charms of invincibility escaped with only minor injuries.
He was rushed to the hospital but later discharged for herbal treatment at home.
However, the suspect who had his mask removed was identified as a resident of the Adansi Brekete community and was later arrested by the police.
