Two suspected armed robbers have been killed and four others busted for their alleged involvement in some robberies and murder cases along the Kintampo-Buipe-Tamale highway.
Four others were also arrested and detained. They are Saaju Bukari, Bertor Saabi, Ali Amadu and Isaad Seidu.
A press release signed by Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Samuel Kwesi Ofori, Acting Director-General of the Public Affairs Department, said the six were allegedly involved in some robberies and murder cases along the Highway.
“The two, Hamidu Umaru and Haadu, were killed after some gun exchanges with the Police Intelligence and Operational teams,” the release said.
The release said the Intelligence-led operations by the Special Anti-Robbery Task Force resulted in retrieving two locally manufactured pistols, live cartridges, machetes, bayonets, pepper spray cans and stun guns.
Some suspected stolen items retrieved included mobile phones and motorbikes, it added.
