Theft robbery

Dampare and his men are working: Police arrest five more suspects of the Anglo Afiadenyigba robbery

Since the appointment of the current IGP, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, the Ghana police service has made significant progress in the apprehension of armed robbers. Just a few hours ago, the Ghana Police Service issued a press release announcing the arrest of some alleged armed robbers who committed a robbery in the Volta region, specifically Anglo-afiadenyigba.

Ten armed robbers robbed a company and the passengers of a car at the area, according to the news statement. An operation on October 1st resulted in the arrest of five of these accused armed robbers. Haruna Toboloka, 36, Akwasi Owusu, 18, Famous Normesi, 29, Lumor Eric, 32, and Korku Ahadzi, 39, are the robbers' names and ages, respectively.

According to the press release, police intelligence led to the arrest of two more suspects, Ahadze Anane, 26, and Ahadze Kwame, 33, as well as three others whose identities are being withheld due to the nature of the investigation. Two of the suspects apprehended, according to the article, were employees of the company that was robbed. 

The police went on to warn business owners to do their homework before hiring employees, citing a recent trend of employees collaborating to loot businesses. They also mentioned that they are willing to help if needed.

It's simply too bad that in an era when getting a job is difficult, some will be fortunate enough to get one, and all they'll be doing is scheming to bring down the business of the exact hand that feeds them. These robbery problems are getting out of hand. 

We should congratulate the police on their excellent efforts and encourage them to do even more. Ghana's police force is blessed by God.

People who have viewed the post have commented on it. Some are praising the Ghana police force for their efforts in recent months and how they have been able to restore calm to various communities across the country. Others believe these criminals should be promptly imprisoned for their crimes.
