Oman FM reporter shot by armed robbers


A journalist with Accra-based Oman FM has been shot by armed robbers at his residence in Tema.

Michael Creg Afful was shot in the leg when the robbers numbering about four besieged his house around 2:am Friday dawn.

Narrating his ordeal to Adom News, the victim said he was subjected to severe beatings for resisting them when they were breaking into the house.

“I saw two of the robbers in my living room and they ordered me to sleep on the floor, but when I decided to open the door, they started beatings and shot me in the leg.”

Michael also revealed that, he also lost a tooth when he was being battered by the robbers in the presence of his wife and two children who are two months and three years old respectively.

But the robbers – who made away with a flat screen TV, CFA 3,000 and GH¢1,300 – did not harm his family, he added .

He was rushed to the Tema General Hospital where the bullets were removed from his leg.

Michael Afful is currently in stable condition recovering from his wounds.
