Residents say, the robbers trailed the couple from a bank where they had gone to withdraw a colossal amount of money.

The couple, suspecting danger, parked their private vehicle at East Amanful but only to be bounced on by their attackers.

The armed men, shots the thighs of their victims, took the bag containing the money and rode on their motorbikes in the full glare of the public.

The victims have since been rushed to the hospital for attention.
