An official vehicle reportedly stolen from the Northern Region Coordinator of the Nation Builder’s Corps (NABCo), Mr Yahaya Abdul Rahman, has been found, Dailymailgh.com can report.
The vehicle with registration number NR 9902 -19 had been abandoned in the outskirts of Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region, Friday.
It is not immediately known whether the assailants had made away with some valuables including his two mobile phones at the time the vehicle was found.
The victim has since been informed over the development.
Witnesses say Mr. Rahman was attacked by three gun-wielding men Thursday night after the unidentified armed men stormed his home in Kanvili Tuunayili, a suburb of Tamale, at about 9:30pm.
Mr Rahman who is also contesting the New Patriotic Party parliamentary primary in the Tamale Central constituency, escaped unhurt.
The visibly shaken man jumped onto a motorbike shortly after the incident, and reported the matter to the Police.
An eyewitness, Philip Abajori, who is a neighbour to Mr Rahman,
said that he heard a shout for help from the NABCo coordinator’s home.
According to him, he saw the vehicle being driven out by three men while entering the coordinator’s house in response to the distress call.
“We saw the vehicle moving and he told us he has been attacked. Looking at his posture he appeared confused so we had to contact a radio station to spread the news as I speak to you he had gone to the police station to make an official complaint”, Abajori told DailyMailGh.
“This is the second time such an incident has happened. The first one happened around Islamic Secondary School”, he narrated.
Residents say Tamale has become a dangerous city for them in recent time due to the prevalence of crime rate.
This is the fourth time in two weeks that three pick up vehicles and a Prado have been robbed at gunpoint in Tamale.
Meanwhile, the police have assured residents they will do their best to arrest the criminals.
