Fulani languages by ordering all the passengers to get down and collected all
their phones and money.

He said they took his phone and GH¢220.00

the passengers who was travelling to Tatale and this is besides the money and
other valuables collected from other passengers.

stretch.

than six robbery cases on the road which is not a healthy situation.
