Yendi Senior High School (SHS) fresh graduate, Rahman Abdul Basit has been killed in a robbery-attack-caused accident at Mpaha in the Central Gonja District.
Rahman, who was reportedly heading home after successfully completing his West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination, was a victim of an accident that saw his right hand detached from his body.
The robbers attacked the Benz bus with registration number GR 4336 D, in which the new graduate was travelling in.
The robbers started shooting through the windscreen of the heavily loaded car, and the only option for the driver was to drive through them.
In the course, the Benz truck somersaulted and landed on the right side, where the new graduate was seated with his hands outside the window.
The impact of the fall left him amputated before he was rushed to the Tamale Teaching Hospital where he subsequently passed on.
Meanwhile, one of the robbers also lost his life, making the death toll rise to 2. Both bodies have been conveyed to the hospital’s mortuary.
