Operation

Briefing the Daily Graphic on the arrest of the suspects yesterday, the Accra Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Osabarima Oware Asare Pinkro III, said a combined team of detectives from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Headquarters and the Accra Regional Command picked up the suspects from different locations in Accra.

“The suspects were arrested at different locations in Accra, including Ablekuma, Olebu and Kasoa, after the police had picked up intelligence and tip-offs.

“The unregistered Hyundai Elantra car that was snatched by the robbers at the scene of the incident was abandoned at Olebu and is currently with the police. Other exhibits that were retrieved from the suspects include empty shells and an unregistered Royal motorbike,” he said.

Osabarima Pinkro said the police were still interrogating the suspects and looking out for possible leads that would ensure that all persons involved in the robbery at Lapaz and the subsequent killing of Constable Daniel Owusu and causing injury to Constable Alhassan Jibril, both of the Community Policing at the Police Headquarters, were arrested.

The shooters

Asked if the 15 suspects who had been arrested included the two who had carried out the shooting at the robbery scene, he said the police were still doing due diligence to be sure of the role each of the suspects played in the robbery.

“The fact is that some arrests have been made and we are still carrying out detailed.
