A Notorious Guinean armed robber, who is suspected to have killed a policeman in the James Town bullion armed robbery, has been arrested at Kyebi Zongo in the Abuakwa South Municipality in a joint police operation upon a tip-off. The suspect, 26-year-old Musa Kamara, was arrested together with three other hardened criminals who were all suspected to be involved in the bullion van robbery at Adedenkpo, James Town in Accra.
The arrest was effected by a combined police force from Accra and Kyebi.
Musa Kamara, who wanted to escape, was shot in the knee by the police before being arrested and is currently receiving treatment at the Kyebi Government Hospital under heavy police guard.
The three other suspects who were arrested at Kyebi Zongo on Saturday are Collins Addae aka Kekye; Ebenezer Gyimah, aka Peace and another Guinean, Suleman Keta alias 69, a brother of Musa Kamara.
