We Are Looking For Three Notorious Armed Robbers In Accra- Police Issues Fresh Notices

A 33-year old woman was robbed at gunpoint today at Apenkwa, Accra. The poor woman fearing for her life gave out a cash amount of twenty-nine thousand Ghana Cedis (GHC29,000.00) she carried today.


According to a report shared by the Ghana Police Service, the victim was unhurt but a bystander who witnessed the crime sustained serious injuries and was admitted at the hospital under an emergency. Preliminary investigation conducted by the police have placed an alert on three unnamed robbers who robbed the woman and assaulted the bystander.


The police is assuring of getting these criminals to book as soon as possible, and thus urged the public to remain calm as they work to protect communities against these crimes. Given the swiftness with which the police have been pursuing robbery cases, the public is confident the robbers will be arrested and every property or cash lost to the victim and others will be retrieved and returned to them accordingly.


The early comments made to the publication by the Police in their social media page proves Ghanaians trust the police lately. Some had referenced cases that the police had succeeded in apprehending armed robbers in the city of Accra and other parts of the country.

In most of these cases the public played a vital role by volunteering information about the hideouts of these criminals. One motivating factor that led tot he early arrest of these crimins was the bounty placed on the heads of the robbers.


Unfortunately, in this case no bounty was offered to the public, and this may not excite the public as it has been with previous cases to volunteer information.


The amount involved here is huge and the victim should have been advised to offer a reward for any useful information that will lead to the arrest of the three armed robbers.


Below is a press statement that was issued by the police on the robbery incident.
