Two in police grip for robbery

Two suspects have been arrested for robbing a commercial motorbike rider in Kudzeagbakorpe, a community near Dzodze in the Ketu North Municipality. 

Michael Maccatus, 31 and Wisdom Agbotokpo, 25, are said to have hired the services of the victim, Awudi Kwame, to transport them from Tadzewu to Ave-Dakpa on September 28, 2021.

While in transit at Ative near Tadzewu, the suspects ordered the victim to stop, and he obliged.

They then ordered him to surrender his motorbike keys which he declined.

At that instance, the suspects reportedly attacked the victim with their weapons and inflicted wounds on his head, but the victim managed to escape into the bush with the motorbike key.

A distress call by the victim to his colleagues in Tadzewu led to the arrest of the suspects at Kudzeagbakorpe, while they were trying to escape with the motorbike.

They were later handed to the police and the weapons were retrieved together with the motorbike, a statement from the police said.

Meanwhile, the injured victim has been treated and discharged from the hospital.

The suspects will be arraigned before the Tokor Circuit Court Friday, October 1, 2021, at 10:30 am.

The police also expressed their appreciation to the youth of Tadzewu for the bravery and patriotic spirit exhibited in arresting these miscreants.

“We believe that together we can fight crime to the barest minimum and also encourage the public to continue such partnership,” the police said.
