On January 7 at Tamale in the Northern Region, targeted intelligence activities resulted in the detention of Abdul Halid Shaibu alias Oluu and Ibrahim Razak.
In connection with the violent unrest that took place on December 10, 2022, in Cape Coast in the Central Region at the National Democratic Congress’s youth and women’s congress, at least two people have been detained.
The two suspects, Abdul Halid Shaibu alias Oluu and Ibrahim Razak, who were two of the 16 people sought for their alleged involvement in the disturbances, were captured on January 7 in Tamale, in the Northern Region, as a result of focused intelligence operations.
The two suspects are currently being detained and helping the police with their inquiries, according to a statement from the law enforcement agency.
The suspects’ faces have been exposed, according to the police, because they had already been identified as sought and their photographs had been posted online as part of “our search to seek public assistance in getting them apprehended.”
“The targeted intelligence operations are still ongoing to arrest the remaining 14 suspects and we would like to assure the public that we shall surely get them to face justice,” the statement added.
