As the hostilities raged, eyewitness scrambled for and grabbed the banknotes which were flying around, in the end, the businessmen only managed to retrieve just GHC2500 out of the 123,345 he had withdrawn from the bank, the police said in a statement.

“The two robbers died in the process, while the money scattered on the streets and were scrambled by people around, leaving only GHC2500 salvaged by the complainant,” the police statement read further.
