Two suspected armed robbers were yesterday killed in a shoot-out with the police at Bosom Abena, near Kasoa, in the Central Region.

The deceased have been identified only as Scary 27, and Saah, 36. The bodies have since been deposited at the Police Hospital in Accra.

A police officer, Constable Joseph Obise, also sustained gunshot wounds in the process. Briefing the media yesterday, the Central Regional Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Mrs. Irene Serwaa Oppong said about 1:30 a.m. yesterday, a group of about 10 masked men, suspected to be armed robbers, attacked owners of a Chinese company, F&J Rock Quarry, with pump action guns and pistols.

The suspects ordered the workers and the Chinese owners, resident on the premises of the company, to surrender their phones and money. The armed men also demanded that their captives take them to where the company’s money was kept.

The workers were subsequently rescued by two police guards at the company after the suspects engaged them in a shoot-out leading to the death of the robbers and injury to one of the officers.

None of the workers was harmed or injured in the attack.

According to Mrs. Oppong, the suspects managed to bolt with the Constable’s rifle with an empty magazine.

A search conducted on one of the deceased led to the retrieval of four mobile phones suspected to be stolen.
