Some two suspected armed robbers have been gunned down again at Manso Dawusaso in the Ashanti Region by the Ghana Police Service.
According to a report by the Police Administration, the gang attempted to rob a dealer at his house in the Amansie South District on Friday, September 24.
The Regional Command’s Anti-Robbery Task Force upon intelligence about the robbery, embarked on an operation which resulted in the arrest of one of the suspected robbers after two others have been shot and killed.
The statement released by the police explained that at about 9:00 pm that Friday, the suspects allegedly disarmed the private security guard of his weapon and fired shots into the residence. The police had already “mounted a 24-hour surveillance on the gang” and “returned fire to protect the innocent lives in and around the property.”
As a result, the two who sustained gunshot wounds were arrested and sent to the hospital. They were subsequently pronounced dead on arrival. The statement further indicated that four suspects managed to escape.
The Police, however, revealed that another suspect, Abraham Kwasi Tetteh, has been arrested in connection with the incident. It added that four others are on the run and are currently being pursued.
The Ashanti Regional Police Command is said to have also retrieved a shotgun, pistol, and a taxi cab to the Police station.
This brings the number of armed robbers shot and killed by the Ghana Police Service in two days to four.
The Ghana Police Service shot and killed another two suspected armed robbers on Saturday, September 25 during a shootout when they attempted to rob motorists along the Koluedor-Sege-Accra main road.
