Three armed robbers have been apprehended by police after their operations at New Bortianor in Accra, Ghana.
Reports indicate that, Jerry Danquah, 25, a driver; David Asare, 26, a trader, and Isaac Donkor, alias Kofi Nyakamago, 27, a basket weaver were exposed by a vehicle-tracking device installed on a vehicle they stole—and subsequently arrested on October 4, 2015.
Accra Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police Mr Christian Tetteh Yohuno, told Daily Graphic that: “the four suspects attacked the victim (name withheld) in his house about 2 a.m. on October 4, 2015.
After subjecting the victim to severe beatings, the suspected robbers tied him with a flying tie and looted his house, making away with an HP laptop, an Ipad, a Samsung phone, a set of jewellery and GHc600.
Mr Yohuno said not satisfied with the booty, the suspects demanded the ignition key to the victim’s Toyota Hilux pick-up which was parked in the compound and drove off, after loading the stolen items into it.”
According to him, “the police managed to intercept the vehicle at the Chopoli Barrier on the Sogakope road within an hour of the robbery with the help of the tracking device. It was suspected they were heading towards Togo to sell the vehicle.”
Mr. Yohuno told the News Paper that on of the accomplices [Dauda] who is believe to be the leader of gang is currently on the run.
He said the police has retrieved all the stolen items and the GH¢600.
