Two robbery suspects have been shot as police foil their operation on the Amasaman to Nsawam Highway in the Greater Accra Region.
Police sources said the shootout happened on Tuesday, July 13, 2021, while they were trailing their victim on a motorbike.
The victim, who says he had suspected he was being trailed from his mirror view, felt safe to park close to a private car, which unknown to him, was an unmarked car being used by police to follow the pillion passenger, known as Suleman Alhassan alias MAN, aged 35.
Mr Alhassan is alleged to have been involved in series of robberies in Accra and Tema with the police operation as part of surveillance on the suspect.
Suspect Alhassan, on seeing the police, opened fire, hitting the passenger side headlight of the unmarked car.
The police returned fire hitting suspect Alhassan in his face. The rider was also shot to prevent his escape.
Items retrieved included a Bruni MOD 92 foreign pistol loaded with two live rounds and the Royal Motorbike.
Meanwhile, the Police have since urged the public for information on suspected criminals and assured informants of utmost confidentiality.
