Sissala West MP escapes unhurt from an armed robbery attack
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Sissala West in the Upper West Region, Mohammed Adama Sukparu, has escaped unhurt after he was allegedly attacked by suspected armed robbers.
The MP says the attack was carried out by the suspected robbers between Jefisi and Bulu at about 7:50 pm on Friday, while he was returning from a funeral he attended at Jessi.
The legislator told the media that he escaped unhurt with other occupants of his car.
“We were returning from a funeral at Jefisi, all of a sudden some armed men, numbering about five stopped us and started firing into my car”.
He said, “my bodyguard returned fire and I saw one of them falling down. But the driver sped off, so we could not stop to know what happened to him”.
He has since reported the matter to the Police.
