For robbing residents of the Upper West Region in Ghana, Police officials have arrested two suspects and shot dead one suspect.
This was contained in a statement issued on Sunday by the Director-General, Public Affairs, Ghana Police Service, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Kwesi Ofori, and made available to Security Watch Africa (SWA).
It reads “The Police have arrested two persons in the Upper West Region for allegedly robbing and injuring two victims.
“The suspects, Musdeen Issahaku and Alhassan Musah who were part of a team of four on a robbery spree on Saturday dawn, November 13, 2021, in the Wa West District of the Upper West Region, stabbed two of their victims who are currently responding to treatment at the hospital.
“Another suspect, Osman Seidu while attacking some residents at Poyentanga with a weapon was shot dead,” it said.
The statement explained that there is a manhunt for the fourth suspect who escaped arrest.
“We are appealing to residents in the Wa West District and its environs to be on the lookout and report any badly wounded person for Police action. Suspect Musdeen Issahaku is an ex-convict who is standing in for another armed robbery case at Wa Circuit Court, where he is on court bail.
“We commend residents of Poyentanga and Samanbo for collaborating with the Police to arrest the suspects.
“Indeed, Police-community partnership is the master key for crime-fighting and we continue to urge the public to work with the Police in this regard.”
