A viral video sighted on social media yesterday had captured three guys on a motorbike attempting to snatch a phone from a Motor Transport and Traffic Directorate (MTTD) officer in Broad daylight.
The video, filmed by a bystander saw these guys ride their bike close to where the MTTD officer was working and the Pallion rider trying to snatch his phone.
The officer was caught unaware while standing in the middle of the road busily making a call when the incident happened.
The officer almost got his phone snatched by the thieves on a motorbike but the phone fell when they tried to make a run for it.
The video has received many hilarious comments on it with some saying the officer deserved what he got.
Others also highlighted the fact the Stealing has become rampant in the society and thieves are not afraid to take their acts to police officers.
Meanwhile, some social media commentators have opined that it could have been that these guys were only trying to prompt the officer that he is on duty so he should do his job and stop making calls.
Many attempted robbery cases have been reported in the news since the infamous daylight Bullion Van Robbery happened on the Korle-bu road.
It is as if robbers in Ghana have gained some confidence and no longer fear the authorities.
Rumor has it that the many robberies occurring in Ghana are done by foreign nationals who have come to seek refuge in the country but no evidence has been provided to substantiate these claims.
