Ghanaian entrepreneur gives up on tech business after losing 9-year investment to robbers

A heartbroken Ghanaian entrepreneur says he has given up on his tech business after he lost his nine-year-old investment in a robbery incident.

The owner of Igoods Ghana Limited disclosed on Twitter that his tech shop at Abossey Okai Zongo was raided and goods, mostly Apple products worth thousands of dollars stolen.

Backing his claim, a CCTV footage was provided in which the perpetrator is seen hurriedly packing phones into a luggage.

The video sighted by Topstories shows the thief bagging phones that were on display in the Igoodsgh shop.

The video was captioned, “Sad news lovely people our shop was broken into at 3am this dawn and everything in there was stolen. Pls note we will not be working untill further notice. All orders will be made when we resume. Kindly bear with us and remember us in ur prayer”

Expressing his sorrow in another statement, the entrepreneur chronicled the hardships he had endured since he started his business some nine years ago.

He gave a chilling account of how his shop attendant was attacked at the Adabraka shop two years ago and her throat cut.

“I have been attached, stabbed, knocked down, beaten, mocked, called names, robbed and I still came back strong. Last 2years they attacked my Adabraka shop and cut my sales girl’s throat,” he revealed.

“Now that I moved to Abossey Okai everything I have worked for, for the past 9years has gone down the drain. Coming back will be difficult and I have given up on this tech stuffs,” he sadly stated.

It could be recalled that in January this year, the Chief Executive Officer of Igoods Ghana Limited, was in the news for being duped of GH¢700,000.00 by an iPhone supplier.

He shockingly revealed how empty boxes of iPhones were supplied to him to sell after he had paid the supplier.

I started this company for the love of tech, I never started this company to make profit. God knows my heart. Ever since I started I have tried so many ways to make things better. I get blamed for so many things I don’t even have an idea about and people call me all sort of names all because of some petty small issues. Over the 9years I have been attached, stabbed, knocked down, beaten, mocked, called names, robbed and I still came back strong.

Last 2years they attacked my Adabraka shop and cut my sales girl’s throat so I had to close down the shop and now that I moved to Abossey Okai everything I have worked for, for the past 9years has gone down the drain. Coming back will be difficult and I have given up on this tech stuffs.

I have received all the encouragement but I think I need to step back for a while. All my shops will be closed down until further notice. Investigations are going on so please bear with me. People that have done pre-order and people that have made payment, we will have all the money returned back and to those that have phone return issues we promise to solve them as soon as we resume. So sorry for any inconvenience caused. Please remember me in your prayer. God bless you all.
