The Ashanti Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP), Afful Boakye Yiadom, is leading a special “bush operation” to arrest four suspects who allegedly shot and killed a gold buyer.

The attack occurred on Monday, January 24, 2022, when the gold dealer now deceased, was transporting gold from Attabrakoso towards Huu, in the Western Region.

A news brief from the Police said the suspects made away with about 324 grams of gold.

It said they also took away unspecified amounts of money together with some mobile phones and fled into a nearby bush.

The brief appealed to gold buyers to be on the lookout for the gang.

“Any suspicious gold dealer(s) should be reported to the Police for a possible quick arrest,” it said.

The brief called on the public to aid investigation with any information concerning the robbery.
