Deputy Regional Police Commander, DCOP Samuel Alfred Winful told JoyNews that the two, Osei King Solomon and Narifu Peter were apprehended at their various hideouts after an attacked victim lodged a complaint to the Abease Police.

On reaching a section of the road, the accused persons, Osei King Solomon alias Kwaku and Nafuri Peter Tupac and their accomplices, currently at large numbering about 4 who were armed with locally manufactured guns, blocked the road and were robbing travelers and other road users.”
