Police in Kibi have arrested two people who attacked tomato traders on board a KIA Rhino Truck on the Bunso-Osiem highway on June 6.

The truck with registration number GC 328-11 was loaded with tomatoes and travelling from Akyem Begoro in the Eastern Region to Ashaiman in the Greater Accra Region.

The suspects, Haruna Amadu aged 25 and Joseph Nyira aged 25, attacked the traders at about 4 am at Bunso Site 2 on the said highway.

They robbed the five female traders of their monies and bags at gunpoint.

One of them also shot one of the traders called Victoria in the head, killing her as a result.

The suspects fled into the bush after the operation.

But the Police, upon learning of the incident, pursued them in the bush and arrested suspects with the support of community members.

Items retrieved from the suspects include two unregistered single-barrel shotguns, a machete, bags, voter ID Cards and assorted mobile sim cards, some of which belonged to the victims.

The suspects and exhibits are in the custody of the Police, pending processing for Court.
