Dampare’s Tactics Are Working Again: Police ‘Chases’ Stubborn Armed Robber With Deep Gunshot Wounds

The Upper West Region is gradually becoming a haven for armed robbers. Residents in the regions have had reasons to come face to face with armed robbers who are causing deaths and injuries in many families. Sometimes, they block main highways and launch their attacks, they end up stealing everything on their victims at gunpoint.

The police have arrested many of them in the past but they have not shown any signs of giving up anytime soon. Four armed robbers are currently in deep trouble after their attempts to attack failed in the Wa West District. It is unknown their main motive for the robbery but they decided to move from one home to the other robbing anyone they come across.

In their attempt to attack and steal, two innocent persons were stabbed and have in the process sustained deep injuries. One of the armed robbers identified as Seidu Osman tried to engage the police but he was overpowered and ended up being shot dead. Two others, Musdeen Isaahaku, and Alhassan Musah could not stand the tactics of the police and gave up. They have been arrested, however, one of the armed robbers bolted from the scene with serious wounds. He is wounded and the police are on a serious manhunt for him. He is suspected to still be hiding around the community of Poyentenga and its environs possibly receiving treatments for his wounds. He can run but can never hide because the police will surely chase and arrest him.

They are young adults with bad records as one of them has been identified as an ex-convict who is also standing trial for another robbery attack after the court granted him bail. In this situation, the armed robber in question has decided never to change even after punishment. He has already completed a jail term, he is standing atrial for another robbery attack, and has been arrested whilst launching another robbery with his gang.

The tactics of forming the anti-robbery task force in the country by the IGP, George Akuffo Dampare has so far yielded their intended results as many armed robbery attacks have been foiled. Many armed robbers have also been arrested with others being killed. These tactics must continue to work at all times for the country to overcome the deadly activities of armed robbers.
