Reports have it that Radiance Filling station at Adeiso in the Upper West district of the Eastern Region have been invaded by well-built armed robbers at 1am this dawn.
Narrating the incident on Nyankonton mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5 FM, Eastern Regional Correspondent, Prince Collins Benin said, these armed robbers on arrival struck the security personnel with a very huge metal while he was trying to shout for help and tied him with a rope.
Both male and female staff of Radiance Filling Station were also beaten mercilessly and tied as well.
They managed to turn all the lights in the filling station off making it easier for them to gather a lot of assets namely mobile phones and the sales of the day which had not been put into their main save, he added.
When a station master, Chief Inspector Kwasi Baah came with the police to the scene at the point where these robbers were busily breaking into the station’s main save, they were unable to fire any shot because the whole area was very dark.They assumed that the workers were also lying at crime scene, he explained.
One female staff member was also raped even though she was in her menstrual period by one of these robbers. Her sorrowful pleas to the robber proved futile, he said sadly.
These criminals have fled. Nevertheless, one out of the six robbers was shot on arrival by the police and the police are still on guard busily trying to arrest these criminals.

Veteran highlife musician, Rex Omar, has disputed saying that, Ghana will soon legalize homosexuality.
He told Prince Kwesi Dadzie aka Mr. Handsome that, he never said Ghana will legalize homosexuality as reported by some media portals.
It was widely reported by some news portals that the musician said Ghana will have no option than to legalize homosexuality because it is a choice by those who practice it.
But clarifying what he had said in the past, Rex Omar said, we cannot violate the rights of individuals who are homosexuals because that is their choice but I never said we will legalize it.
‘’Let me clear my position and I want Ghanaians to listen attentively. What I said was that, God created human beings. We know that there are some people who appear like men but they are women. We have people who by nature they behave like men although they are women (and vice versa) and so if you should give birth to such a person, will you kill them?
‘’I do not support homosexuality because it is disgusting. We cannot bow under pressure to accept homosexuality because that is not our culture. However, we should always be careful to protect such individuals because there are some people who choose to be homosexuals.’’
He called on Ghanaians to be careful so such individuals are not abused. I am not in support of it but I am speaking based on what I have seen and witnessed. I only said maybe Ghana will legalize it. Maybe can be 100 years or 200 years,’’ he emphasized.
