The swift intervention of the Police and the Military has foiled a possible robbery incident in the Volta Region capital of Ho.
This follows the arrest of some three suspected armed robbers who were in the possession of a firearm and other offensive weapons in the Barracks New Town suburb.
Doe Kofi, 20, Appiah Joseph, 27, and Yaovi Gideon, were arrested by a joint patrol team military tasked to weed out miscreants within the Ho municipality ahead of the new year.
