FOUR PERSONS, suspected to have a hand in the shooting to death of two policemen at Drobonso in Sekyere Afram Plains in the Ashanti region, have been nabbed.
Two others, who are cattle owners and believed to be financiers of the armed robbery gang that shot and killed the policemen, are also in the firm grips of the police in Kumasi.
Another suspect who allegedly sells and distributes offensive weapons to the robbery gang, has also been grabbed by the law enforcement agents, assisting in investigations.
The Ashanti Regional Police Commander, COP Ken Yeboah, who relayed this vital information to the media, through a press release, said efforts are being made to arrest two other key suspects in the brutal killing of the two policemen.
On January 11, 2018, Inspector Adolph Mutse and Constable Prosper Asinyo, stationed at the Kumawu Police Station, were shot and killed by suspected robbers, whilst returning home from patrol duties at Drobonso.
The Ashanti Regional Chief disclosed that the seven suspects picked so far by the police, were arrested at their hideouts at Kwamang in the Ashanti Region and Jema, Yeji, Techiman and Prang, all in the Brong Ahafo Region.
He said the police have so far managed to retrieve two short guns, one locally-made manufactured pistol and seventeen live cartridges from the suspects, who are still being investigated by the law enforcement agents.
COP Yeboah said the police cannot release the names of the seven suspects to the media now due to security reasons, and he urged the public to support the police with vital information so that the remaining suspects would be arrested.
