Two robbers shot dead, one injured in gun battle with police

Two armed robbers have been shot dead close to Bole in the Savannah Region.

A third robber Ali Igudu has been left injured and currently receiving medical care under police guard.

Ali is believed to be their leader and is notorious for many attacks within that enclave.

A statement from the police said Igudu is the alleged mastermind behind the murder of several victims, including two persons identified as Alhaji Ousuman Amadu and Fuseini Galagala.

The robbers who were allegedly planning another attack opened fire when a combined team of trained Operations and Intelligence Team uncovered their hideout in the Bono East and Savannah regions.

The shootout led to the death of one Iddrisu and Dramani Iddi.

Police intelligence revealed that the gang is mainly responsible for a series of robberies, kidnappings and murder cases in the Bono East and Savannah regions.

Areas hit hard by the robbers include Bole, Sawla, Banda-Nkwanta, Prang, Yeji, Kintampo, New Longoro and Techiman.

Multiple weapons and ammunition were found at the hideout.

Robbery cases continue to rise in the country.

From January to the end of October 2019, the West Africa Network for Peacebuilding (WANEP) early warning system records captured 80 armed robbery cases in Ghana.

Fast forward to June 9, 2021; a man was shot in the stomach in a daylight robbery by two armed men at Pig Farm.

He was pronounced dead 24 hours after being treated at the 37 Military Hospital.

That same day, two armed men broke into a forex bureau near Honeysuckle in Osu and made away with an undisclosed amount of money.

The culprits in these two incidents are currently at large.

On June 11, 2021, an unidentified man in an attempted robbery case attacked the driver of a Nissan Pathfinder with registration number GE-8088-11 on the GIMPA- Fiesta Royale road.

He threw a big stone at the vehicle, smashing its glass door and tried to escape into a nearby bush. But he was arrested by the police after the victim raised the alarm.

On June 14, three armed robbers on a motorcycle trailed a Mon-Tran bullion van and robbed occupants of the cash in the truck.

Two victims died in the incident, which occurred at Adedenkpo in Jamestown.
