Police say they have arrested six robbery suspects believed to have orchestrated a series of robberies, including carjacking in the Greater Accra and Central Regions.
They said the arrest was made through a targeted intelligence-led operation between April 15 to April 17 at various locations in Greater Accra and Central Regions.
According to a statement from the police on Monday, the six suspects – Jibrila Musa alias Danturi, Hussain Sampa, Daniel Acquah, Anthony Sackey, Michael Ojo and Ade Banjor – confirmed their involvement in various robberies during interrogations.
The suspects are currently in police custody, assisting with investigations.
“The suspects have admitted during interrogations to their involvement in robberies over the years. We have contacted some of the victims as part of our strategy to give them closure regarding their unpleasant experiences with these armed robbers,” a statement from the Police said.
The Police said they retrieved one locally manufactured gun, one foreign pistol, a cache of ammunition, two Iphones and four wristwatches and one stolen vehicle from the suspects.
The statement added, “all criminals and their cohorts must advise themselves and know that they can run, but they can never hide. The police will do whatever it takes to come after them and bring them to justice”.
The police assured the public of their commitment to ensuring a safe and secure environment devoid of criminal activities.
