Two Grabbed For Robbing Hotel Guests

The two suspects; Emmanuel Agyei (left) and Kofi Gyan.Two people have been arrested by the Police in Kumasi for attacking and robbing guests at their hotel rooms in Kumasi.

Suleman Iddrisu, alias Babamu and Abdul Abass, seized laptop computers, Samsung galaxy phones, wrist-watches, modems, pen drives and cash totaling GH¢340 from the victims at gun point.

Their accomplices, Baba Arebey and Akwasi alias Skate are on the run and are being sought for by the police.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Ampofo Duku, Deputy Ashanti Regional Commander, at a press briefing said the victims, both auditors, were attacked in their hotel rooms at Ayigya on Monday, September 15, at about 3 a.m.

The auditors, who were contracted by the Controller and Accountant-General’s Department to undertake an assignment, were sleeping when the pistol-wielding robbers broke into their rooms, hit them several times with the butt of their guns, forced them to lie down, rummaged their places and made away with their items and the cash.

The alertness of a witness led to their arrest when they attempted to sell the stolen items.

In another incident, the police have apprehended Malik Jibril after a foiled robbery attack on a businessman.

ACP Duku said the suspect and his gang booked hotel accommodation at where the businessman was staying but the police received a tip-off and moved in to prevent them from carrying out their evil plan.

He said the suspect’s other accomplices managed to slip through, and that, a search on him resulted in the discovery of a loaded French made pistol.—GNA
