The cash was stashed in seven cash boxes.

On approaching Gwebi River Bridge lay-bye, the driver stopped the vehicle after one of his colleagues asked to empty his bowels.

As soon as the car stopped, one of the passengers allegedly produced a pistol and fired a shot into the air while his accomplices disarmed one of the security guards of his 303 rifle.
