Robber, 23, Gunned Down At Liberia Camp

A 23-year-old man has been gunned down by the police for his involvement in a robbery at Buduburam in the Central Region.

Abass Salifu, alias Elephant, member of a four-member gang, was said to have been on the police wanted list for three years for his involvement in many robbery incidents at Kasoa and its environs.

He was shot at Liberia Camp when the police attempted to arrest him after he had robbed two people (Bernard Lord De Hands Anyan), at the Camp, where he was said to have gone to warn his girlfriend for leaking information about him to the police.

Briefing The Times, the Kasoa Municipal Police Commander, Superintendent Samuel Tibil Punobyin, said on August 23, at about 12 noon, the Police had information that Salifu was involved in a robbery with a cutlass and a gun between CP and Crispso City at Kasoa.

Police rushed to the scene, and Salifu, who was hiding in a room started firing at them with a locally manufactured pistol, which compelled the police to return fire resulting in his death.

The corpse had been conveyed to the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.
