Mamponteng: Residents decry abandoned road project
Angry residents at Mamponteng, capital of the Kwabre East Municipal in the Ashanti Region have registered their displeasure over an abandoned road project within the Mamponteng Township leading to injuries and deaths of innocent residents.

The Ashanti regional police command has arrested three suspected arm robbers in connection with the robbery attacked at Kuntenase -Onwi road in the Bosomtwe District of the Ashanti region in which a driver was shot dead

The suspects are Yaw Owusu, 18, Henry Sarpong, 31, and Kwame Amponsah 21.

Briefing the Media on Monday, the Assistant Regional Police Commander, DCOP Fred Adu Anim said, the driver, Prince Yeboah who is now deceased was killed in a gun shot by the robbers.

The incident occurred on the Onwi-Kuntanase stretch on the Bekwai-Kumasi Road last Wednesday.

According to the police, the deceased was driving a KIA Pregio vehicle with registration number AS 1755-18 with fourteen passengers on board when the incident happened.   

He said, the deceased attempted to escape by reversing the vehicle when he saw the nine gun-wielding men who had signaled him with torchlight to pull over.

Amidst firing of gunshots, the deceased was hit by pellets of bullets as the gang chased the said vehicle.

The robbers then attacked the unsuspecting passengers robbing them of their personal belongings and some unspecified amount of money after the car had run into a ditch.

DCOP Fred Adu Anim further stated that, when the police proceeded to the scene, three AAA-32g empty cartridges were retrieved.

During preliminary investigations at the scene, police spotted a Daewoo Matrix Taxi cab with registration number GE 4861-19 which suddenly emerged at the scene.

Three occupants who were on board the said vehicle in an attempt to escape were given a hot chase by the police and got them arrested.

A thorough search conducted on them found the deceased’s Itel Mobile phone on Yaw Owusu.
The three have since been detained by the police as they mount search for other accomplices.

In another development, two suspected robbers have also been arrested at Santasi- Apire, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti region for robbing a shop at Patasi in Kumasi.

The suspects are Sampson Amoako Addae, aka Kwame Dame, 23, unemployed, Atakorah Amaniapong 25, shoe maker while their accomplices Kwadwo aka Papa and Emmanuel are at large.

DCOP Fred Adu Anim explained that, on May 2, 2019, the suspects invade a shop at Patasi with guns and Cutlass and took away an amount of money worth GHS3, 750.00, shoes, clothes and mobile phones. The two were later arrested upon police intelligence.
