A 29 year-old suspected armed robber has been smoked out of his hideaway from Kwame Nkrumah Circle by the Accra Regional Criminal Investigation Department.
The suspect who has been identified as Mohammed Buzu is alleged to be responsible for a robbery incident at the residence of the Country Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Buzu, together with his accomplices, according to the police, also allegedly mounted robbery attacks at the residence of the Ambassador of Kuwait to Ghana and that of a Lebanese businessman in Ghana.
A statement from the police dated February 24, 2020 and signed by its Director of Public Affairs, SP Sheilla Kessie Abayie-Buckman indicated that two accomplices, Kenneth Antwi and Baffour Adjei Gyimah, have also been arrested.
“Suspects Mohammed Buru, Kenneth Antwi and Baffour Adjei Gyimah are believed to be connected to other crimes committed at residences at Cantonments and North Rigde, both at Accra and other similar areas. Their pictures have therefore been published for victims of crimes involving these suspects to identify them and provide information to the Police.
“Police have retrieved assorted visa cards; wrist watches; mobile phones; bag packs; a diplomatic card issued by the government of Ghana and drivers’ license issued in Virginia, USA both bearing the name of the wife of one of the victims; passport size photographs of white male and female adults and many more from suspect’s (Buzu) place of abode at Dansoman in Accra,” the statement said.
The three suspects were on Monday remanded to police custody by an Accra Circuit Court today presided over by Mrs. Rosemary Baah Torsu.
