A branch of the Ghana Commercial bank (GCB) at Ashaiman was last Thursday raided by some unidentified armed robbers, who entered the bank through the roof.
Nobody has been apprehended in connection with the incident.
The suspects were said to have entered the bank, near the main Ashaiman lorry terminal through the roof, but preliminary investigations revealed that no money was stolen.
Owing to the situation, management of the bank has suspended operations until Monday to enable the bank officials to access the situation and carry out some maintenance work.
Sources at the bank told DAILY GUIDE that the incident occurred at midnight.
According to reports, the suspects scaled the fence wall and climb the bank’s mast, which was situated behind the building, to gain access to the roof of the building.
They removed the roof of the building, which is made up of concrete slaps.
The suspects, according to reports, entered the strong room where the chunk of money was kept after the day.
They could not break the safe and escaped after ransacking the banking hall.
Superintendent William Daah, Divisional Crime Officer in Ashaiman, when contacted by DAILY GUIDE, confirmed the break-in and explained that police had commenced investigations into the matter to arrest the perpetrators of the crime.
According to him, preliminary investigations revealed that no money was stolen, but the police have asked officials of the financial institution to conduct further checks in the building.
