The Ghana Police Service (GPS) yesterday July 13, 2021, on the Amasaman to Nsawam main road in the Greater Accra region stopped an armed robbery attack on a victim who was being trailed by two suspected armed robbers on a Royal motorbike.

The victim who says he had suspected from his mirror view that the motorbike riders were following him felt safe to park close to a private car.

Unknown to him, the unmarked car was being used by Police to follow the pillion passenger, known as Suleman Alhassan alias MAN aged 35 for alleged involvement in series of robberies in Accra and Tema as part of surveillance on the suspect.
