The Ghana Police Service has announced the arrest of one Bukari Salifu, who is said to provide weapons to armed robbers for their expeditions.

Bukari Salifu, 65, was arrested over the weekend following police intelligence.

Prior to his arrest, two suspected robbers who had been arrested when they attempted to rob motorists along the Koluedor-Sege-Accra road had mentioned Bukari Salifu as the one who provides them with weapons for their robberies.

But while ostensibly taking the police to the man, the two rather took the crime-combat team to a bush full of other armed robbers.

“There, the police came under fire as the suspects attempted to escape,” a press release signed by Acting Director-General of Public Affairs ACP Kwesi Ofori on Monday, September 27 noted.

The suspected armed robbers were shot in the process and were rushed to the Police Hospital, where they died.

They are Joseph Dagodzo and Mujahid Abubakar, alias Sule.

Their bodies have been deposited at the Police Hospital morgue.

Woo, interesting did they intentionally lead the police to them… or it was a setup which went side ways. Whatever idea they had leading the police to that bush actually played out well for the police

Salifu being 65 years means he has been in the game for a long time … I bet he knows other suppliers

I think Most of this armed robbery things are backed by our big men. Even some of this retired officers have gangs that work for them . And they are the people that have been supplying to the armed robbers.

Eeei . This will be scary scene ooo. Wow, so they wanted to engage the police in a fight and run a away. Where do this guys get the audacity from? Broad day robbery with little or no fear of the security services
