Court declares four robbers wanted
The Accra Circuit Court has issued separate arrest warrants to the police administration for the arrest of four suspected armed robbers. The suspects are 32-year-old Richard, 30-year-old Ofei, Mustapha and Oboye.
According to the warrants, Richard is a native of Aburi; Ofei is from Mampong Akuapem; Oboye hails from Dwawenya and Mustapha comes from Ashaiman. Ofei is said to be 5ft 4inches tall and fair in complexion.
According to the warrants, the suspects are believed to be hiding at Ashaiman, Tema and Accra in the Greater Accra region, or Aflao in the Volta Region.
The accused persons allegedly hailed a taxi driven by Emmanuel Kisseh Agovor, by 2:00am on July 7, 2017, from Ashaiman to Ashonmang Estate, in Accra. According to the facts of the matter, the accused persons, armed with AK 47 rifles, broke into the complainant’s house and made away with a Dell laptop, two Samsung edge mobile phones (5 and 7), DVR for CCTV and Mossberg pump action gun all valued at GH¢ 20,000.
“The police upon a tip-off rushed to the crime scene but the accused persons- Richard, Oboye, Ofei and Mustapha- had absconded and are still at large. Some photographs were however obtained during investigations”, the police administration indicated.
The suspects are required to be put before court upon their arrest.
The police administration is, therefore, urging members of the public to assist with information to help arrest the suspect.
Anybody with information should kindly contact the nearest police station or call the police hotlines: 18555 & 191; 0243382836.
