An eyewitness has told Citi News that the Melcom security man who was killed on Monday dawn was hit on the head with a cutter.
Suspected robbers who broke into the Madina Melcom branch killed the security man on duty after he attempted to fend them off from breaking into the shop.

He narrated that “around 12:30 to 1am, it was lights out by then so I was standing in front of my gate, my house was just behind the Melcom so I just saw there were two guys standing on our lane. What we just heard was siren of the shop sounding.”
He said he quickly went to his window to get a glimpse of what was happening adding that “I saw they smashed the security man with a cutter, the one they use to smash the bugler proof. So he shouted and he was shaking. It was very serious.”
“I have a friend, the manager, who is also living around the Melcom, so I asked him what’s wrong this morning and he told me the security man is dead, they smashed his head with a cutter and the cutter is even by the door,” he lamented.
He said his friend “also told me by then they heard the noise and they were calling policemen and they never responded. He said they called several times 991 and also they called and a lady picked up and she hanged up on them and they called later on and she hanged up again.”
Meanwhile, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Accra Police Command, ASP Afia Tenge has told Citi News that they are investigating the issue.
“We will be doing our preliminary investigations to ascertain actually what happened and then we can take it from there,” she added.
