Police search for fuel station robbers

Police at Aflao are on the heels of eight suspected criminals who robbed a fuel station last week at Kopeyia, near Denu.

The robbers took away GH¢198; 184,000 CFA and five mobile phones belonging to the pump attendants.

Mr. Augustine Luguyare, Aflao District Police Commander, told the GNA that the eight robbers, riding on three motorbikes, arrived at the Compass Holium Fuel station at about 0130 hours last Wednesday.

He said the robbers, wielding weapons and other dangerous implements, broke into five rooms the attendants were sleeping in after closure from work, and tied them up.

Mr. Luguyare said as the robbers combed everywhere for more cash, they kicked and hit the attendants, injuring some of them.

He said the suspects fled; some through the bush, abandoning one of their bikes, when one of them, who was keeping sentry, saw the police car arrive.

Mr. Luguyare said everything was being done to unravel the identities of the suspects.

In another case, the Police have arrested one Stanley Wada, alias Keiby, said to be an accomplice of a suspected Aflao-based criminal, Kwaku Asazu, 22, recently nabbed for engaging in a series crimes.  

Wada was arrested upon a hint, as he snucked into his mother’s house near the Aflao beach, in the night.

He has since been remanded by an Aflao Circuit Court into police custody.

A housewife, Horla Afawubo, aged 40, suspected to be have links with Asazu, Wada, and others, has also been remanded into police custody by the court for abetment.
