They Planned To Attack A Businessman At Buokrom Estate: 3 Armed Robbers Shot Dead In Ashanti Region

The anti-robbery taskforce set by IGP Dampare have been on their toes in combating crime in the country. This incident happened in the Ashanti Region of Ghana as the intelligence team moved ahead of an operation to be undertaken by some robbers in Kumasi to be precise. According to the intelligence team they got the information earlier and decided to conduct a search in all cars heading towards Buokrom Estate where they believed the operation was going to take place.

As they kept on searching, they came across a vehicle which was carrying these robbers. As they began the search, the robbers knowing they will be caught decided to shoot at the Police Intelligence team but unfortunately for them they couldn't succeed. The police realising the move immediately shot back at these suspects and ended up killing three of them with one arrested, suspected to be linked to the whole operation.

The three who died are said to have passed on after they were sent to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. A pump-action gun, a resolver pistol, a locally manufactured pistol, a dagger, two black hoods, two pairs of scissors and a quantity of dried leaves suspected to be cannabis were recovered from their car.

This operation was planned so well by these robbers, they wouldn't have missed their target should they have not been intercepted by the anti-robbery taskforce.
