According to the Accra Regional Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Afia Tenge, the suspects upon seeing the Police, attempted to escape and run into a nearby thick bush. She said the Police in the process of arresting the suspects opened fire which ended up hitting one of them. “After a short while, the suspects emerged again; this time from another direction of the forest to continue their operation. The suspect after being hit by the bullet was rushed to the Police Hospital for treatment but has been discharged and handed over to the police. This is the fifth time suspected robbers have been arrested on the stretch in one week, following several complaints of robbery attacks by road users.
