''More often than not, security personnel at banks and other sensitive areas are targeted when there's a robbery invasion. Robo Sniper aims at taking out that risk.
''The security officer is to monitor via an inbuilt camera and command the robot to strike where necessary via a remote control system."
Emmanuel Wireko-Brobby grew up in love but in poverty with his doting mother in Ashanti New Town in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region of Ghana, YenGhana reports.
His father, Edward Wireko-Brobby, and his mother, Nana Asantewaa Mainoo, separated when he was very young and had to live with his mother, who was keen on his education.
