The Anti-Robbery Squad of the Ashanti Regional Police Command is on a special “bush operation” to arrest suspected armed robbers who shot and killed a gold buyer at Jacobu.
The operation is being led by the Regional Police Commander, DCOP Afful Boakye Yiadom.
The gang, according to a police statement, made away with about 324 grams of gold.
The attack occurred Monday, January 24, 2022, when the gold dealer now deceased was transporting the gold from Attabrakoso towards Huu.
The armed gang of four after killing their victim also made away with several unspecified amounts of money together with some mobile phones and fled into a nearby bush.
The police, following the incident, have urged gold buyers to be on the lookout for the gang when they come to sell off their booty.
Also, suspicious gold dealers should be reported to the Police for a possible quick arrest.
“Anyone with any information on the said robbery incident should contact the Police emergency numbers 18555 and 191,” the statement appealed.
