A 30-year-old robber has been gunned down by the Western Regional Police Command with support from the police intelligence unit.
The suspect now deceased is believed to be behind the robbery that led to the killing of a man who was with his wife at Amanful on Monday.
Identified as Shankiki, 30, together with his accomplice were said to have engaged the police in a shootout in Elmina on the Cape Coast highway after the police attempted to arrest them. They were on a blue motorbike with registration number M-20 GW 6060, eyewitnesses say.
Police investigations later led them to the hideout where suspect Inusah Fuseine aged 25 was also arrested. The police retrieved an AK 47 ammunition, a live tortoise and a talisman.
The police have also launched a manhunt for the suspects who escaped during the shootout while the body of Shankiki has been deposited at the police mortuary for preservation.
