Police arrest notorious armed robber in Tema
The Tema Regional Police Command says it has arrested a 25-year-old suspected notorious robber, Musah Adamu, aka Adams, at his hideout in Tema.
The police said the suspect together with his accomplices, now on the run, on November 24, last year, engaged in a suspected robbery activity at Tema Industrial Area about 2.50 am.
However, they absconded when police responded to a distress call, leaving behind a mobile phone and unregistered motorbike which was later retrieved by the police.
The suspect has since been on the radar of the police until his arrest last Wednesday.
Adamu and his gang specialise in using industrial cutters, grinders, heavy-duty hammers and equipment to break into banks, companies and warehouses.
Some members of Adamu’s gang are currently on trial at the Sunyani High Court after their arrest during a robbery activity.
Other members wanted by the police in connection with the robbery in November 2020 are; Ali, aka Dangote, Nsiah, aka Nab, Efo, aka Senior Man, Solani, Quarshie, Santiago and Adamu; a taxi driver in Tema.
Musah Adamu has since been arraigned before the Tema Circuit Court and remanded into police custody to re-appear on May 17.
The police are appealing to the general public to volunteer and assist the police with any information that will lead to the arrest and subsequent prosecution of the above named suspects who are now on the run.
