Police on manhunt for lone robber terrorising parts of Accra

The Ghana Police Service (GPS) is currently looking for a lone robber who is thought to have been active in different areas of Accra.

The GPS assured the public in a statement issued on Wednesday that they are thoroughly looking into the CCTV footage of the lone robber that has been making the rounds on social media. Police reported, “Our intelligence teams have been diligently working on this case for some time now, and we are determined to apprehend the suspect and bring them to justice.”

Additionally, to prevent any additional incidents, the police have tightened security in the targeted communities.

Meanwhile, a joint security operation comprising law enforcement from Ghana and Burkina Faso is looking for alleged terrorists who are thought to be hiding in the Sissala West District neighborhood of Fatchu.

On Wednesday, September 27, at around 11:45 a.m., the Sissala West District Police Command received intelligence indicating that these alleged terrorists may have crossed the border from Burkina Faso into Ghana.

Several things were found during the search of the suspects’ hideout, including a Ghanaian voter ID card, two mobile phones, an unknown amount of ammunition, clothing, and eight bicycles. Images of people wearing terrorist garb were discovered on the recovered mobile phones after closer inspection, with one man, who was around forty (40) years old, strikingly like a terrorist wanted in Burkina Faso.
