The robbers stormed the hostel, which houses UCC students, on Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at 2:00 a.m., and locked up the security guard on duty before embarking on their mission.

According to some eyewitnesses, after locking up the security guard, the robbers broke into some of the rooms and robbed students of their personal belongings and some amount of money.

The robbers were reported to have also made away with laptops, mobile phones, television sets and an amount of GH₵500.

An eyewitness recounted how the robbers banged their door s and opened amid warning shots to warn occupants of one of the rooms in their presence.
