A popular Khebab joint located at the Hilla Limann Hall bus stop at the University of Ghana has been attacked by a machete wielding man.
The incidence is said to have occurred at about 8pm Monday evening.
According to eyewitnesses, the armed attacker was a fellow Khebab seller located at the Night Market which is also on the campus of the university.
Narrating the ordeal to UniversNews, the victim said that he was going about his business serenely until a man appeared in front of him asking for the whereabouts of his master.
According to him, before he could give an answer to the question, the attacker immediately folded up his shirt and brought out knives and a machete.
To avoid physical harm, they took to their heels and the attacker begun scattering their goods.
“I was here selling Khebab. So when we started selling, people were buying. So I was here with my brother when a man appeared from nowhere and asked for our boss. So we said our boss is not here and immediately he removed his shirt and all we could see were knives and also a machete. So we ran for our lives. As soon as he saw us running, he started scattering everything of ours. He also went ahead to destroy the items of the Kenkey seller next to us.
The victim further affirmed observations made by witnesses which suggested that the act was carried out by a fellow Khebab seller based at the Night Market.
The Limann Hall bus stop-based vendor added that he had made a complain to the University of Ghana security.
“It was the night market [Khebab] guy. His name is Baba.
So after what happened, I also rushed to report the incidence to UG security as well as the Police”
