The Winneba Police Command on Thursday afternoon responded to a quick distress call that prevented another attack on a bullion van.
The bullion van plying the Winneba-Kasoa road from Accra was targeted by some armed men but the quick response of the Winnwba Police command saved the day.
The armed men whose identities are not immediately known shot the front passenger seat, where a police escort was sitting, shattering its window in the process.
According to reports, the police escort ordered the driver to speed off upon observing the unusual movement of the robbers, while he called for reinforcement.
The Winneba Patrol team dispatched to Mpata Junction rushed to the scene and started a gun battle with the robbers, overpowering them in the process.
All passengers in the bullion van escaped unscathed and no property was stolen.
This comes after some armed robbers robbed a bullion van at Korle Bu after killing a police escort and a whistleblower.
The 28-year-old police escort was shot in the head by the robbers who trailed them on a motorbike and a taxi.
