Hon. Albert Kan-Dapaah was robbed at gunpoint last night. The chairman of the Public Accounts Committee of Parliament, Hon Albert Kan-Dapaah, was robbed at gunpoint on Tuesday night, Citi News understands.

The specific amount or exact items made away with is not yet known. CitiNews learned the MP for Afigya Sekyere West was attacked at gunpoint after appearing on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana show that evening.

The incident happened just after 11 pm. His private vehicle was vandalised in the process by the gunmen amidst gunshots.

Hon Kan-Dapaah becomes the second legislator to be attacked by robbers in less than a week. Last Friday the MP for Chereponi, Hon. Samuel Abdulai Djabanyite, was also attacked at gunpoint in the Northern region, but he managed to flee from the highway robbers.

The burglars, however, succeeded in robbing occupants of other vehicles following his Ford Expedition, including that of the District Chief Executive.
