Police have killed two alleged robbers and injured one other around Bole in the Savannah Region.
This was undertaken by a combined team of highly trained Operations and Intelligence Team after weeks of painstaking investigations and covert operations within the enclave.
“The gang of robbers who were allegedly planning another robbery attack, opened fire on the police when they were closing in on them, leading to the death of Iddrisu and Dramani Iddi when the Police fired back,” a statement by Acting Director-General, Public Affairs, ACP Kwesi Ofori said.
The alleged notorious leader of the gang, Ali Igudu, according to police reports sustained gunshot wounds and is responding to treatment under a Police guard.
He is allegedly the mastermind behind the murder of one Alhaji Ousman Amadu and Fuseini Galagala among others, police say.
Police intelligence revealed that the gang is largely responsible for the series of robberies, kidnappings and murder cases in the two regions especially in the areas of Bole, Sawla, Banda-Nkwanta, Prang, Yeji, Kintampo, New Longoro, and Techiman.
Multiple weapons and ammunition were found at the scene.
