Western Region: 9 Robbery Suspects Arrested

Nine individuals suspected to be involved in two robbery attacks on January 7 and 8, at Wassa Akropong and Mpohor in the Western Region have been arrested.

The nine individuals suspected to be involved include; Godwin Boah, Philemon Essien, Emmanuel Yaley, Mohammed Sumalia, Evans Amarh, Patrick Aboah, Augustine Nana Abaka, Kwabena Acquah and Godfred Akwah who are currently in the police custody.

During the arrest, Philemon Essien sustained a gunshot wound in his hand and suspect Emmanuel Yaley sustained non- gunshot. The arrest were sent to Effia-Nkwanta Regional Hospital where they were admitted for treatment and are under police guard.

The police retrieved from the suspects a cash amount of ghc2,200, a motorbike and an Opel taxi with registration number WR.3186-14. The taxi has been impounded for further investigation.

The police gave on the look out for two of the suspects who managed to escape.

We highly commend community members of Wassa Appiahkrom and Ayiem for supporting the police in effecting the arrests. We equally commend the personnel of the Western Regional Command for their patriotic services towards ensuring peace and security in the region.

Indeed, Police community partnership is the master key to crime fighting. Let us therefore continue to work together for safer communities.
