Man, 65, who supplies guns to armed robbers arrested
The Ghana Police Service has arrested a suspect, who is known to be a supplier of guns to armed robbers.
Bukari Salifu, 65, was arrested over the weekend following police intelligence.
The Police, in a statement, disclosed that two suspected robbers who had been arrested when they attempted to rob motorists along the Koluedor-Sege-Accra road had mentioned Bukari Salifu as the one who provides them with weapons for their robberies.
However, the two suspects deceived the Police and took them to a bush full of other armed robbers when they had promised to take them to the suspect who supply them with the guns.
“There, the police came under fire as the suspects attempted to escape,” a press release signed by Acting Director-General of Public Affairs ACP Kwesi Ofori on Monday, September 27 noted.
The suspected armed robbers were shot in the process and were rushed to the Police Hospital.
They are Joseph Dagodzo and Mujahid Abubakar, alias Sule.
