According to reports, the thieves came from the nearby jungle on the Bole Bamboi route between Banda Nkwanta and Nuoyiri and signaled the car in which the lawyer and his relatives were traveling to halt.
The driver of the car, Richard Badombia, a lawyer with LARTEY, BADOMBIA & CO. ASSOCIATES, located opposite ROXY CINEMA in Adabraka, Accra, was shot and killed by one of the armed thieves.
The thief had inquired as to whether any of the passengers were police officers.
They attempted to unlock the vehicle’s doors after shooting the lawyer, but the automobile had driven off the road and collided with a tree.
They ran as a bull dog in the car growled at them.
The nearest police station, Banda Nkwanta Police Station, was contacted right away and a report was submitted.
According to the police, dead Richard Badombia was found behind the wheel with pellet wounds on his left face when they arrived on the scene.
“The corpse was taken and stored in the Wenchi Methodist Hospital for preservation while an autopsy was performed.”
Community members and informants have been placed on high alert, and investigations have commenced.
