Criminal Investigation Department (CID) boss, COP Isaac Ken Yeboah, disclosed this at a press briefing on Wednesday, June 30, 2021.
This was to highlight the measures the Police Service has implemented to build a strong security system in the country, including updates on major crimes in the country.
COP Ken Yeboah, in his briefing, named the suspect as Omar Sando, Jibu Ali, and Sando Ali, all believed to be of Fulani descent.
He explained that they were arrested on May 11, 2021, in connection with a highway robbery on the Jacobu-Obuasi road in the Ashanti region.
“The suspects were arrested after they engaged the police in a shoot-out which led to the death of one Mohammed, during a highway robbery,” he said.
According to him, they were convicted and charged after they confessed to having a hand in the MP’s murder with the deceased [Mohammed] being the leader of the gang.
“All the convicts are to be arraigned before the court in respect of the robbery and murder of the late Ekow Quansah Hayford. It means that we are now going to charge them and try them for the murder of the MP,” the CID boss stated.
