Alleged cop killer gunned down

hjfhjfKingsley Kwasi Yeboah, an alleged notorious armed robber, who purportedly shot and killed Corporal Francis Abalo attached to the SWAT Unit of the Accra Regional Police Command, has been killed in a shootout at Asofan, Accra.

He was killed after allegedly engaging the police in another exchange of fire at Nyamekye Fadama Junction at about 9:30pm on September 8, 2016.

His body has been deposited at the Police Hospital while one of his reported accomplices identified as Edem Kelvin Appiah, who was arrested on July 22, 2016, is facing trial.

The police are looking for three others (names withheld) who are still at large.

Confirming the story to DAILY GUIDE, ASP Effia Tenge, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Accra Regional Command, said Kingsley, upon seeing the police, opened fire on them, and the law enforcers returned fire, leading to his death.

Kingsley, who was said to be the leader of a gang of four, including Edem Kelvin Appiah, allegedly attacked one Otis Peprah and Paul Kwame Peprah who had returned from Canada for a funeral on May 19, 2016.

The suspects, reportedly armed with a pump action gun, locally made pistols and a dagger, purportedly attacked the victims at gunpoint in front of their house at Asofan and asked them to surrender all their belongings.

They robbed them of all the bags that they brought from Canada and took a total of $13,000, $4,000 Canadian dollars, GH¢250.00, a Bank of Montreal, Canada, Master card and three black berry mobile phones.

The taxi driver, who transported the victims from the Airport to their destination, was also robbed of his day’s returns of GH¢650.

The suspects later marched the victims to one of the rooms and locked them up before they fled with the booty.

A complaint was later lodged with the police by the victims and while investigations were on-going, police received a tip-off that one of the suspects-Kingsley Kwasi Yeboah aka Moses aka Don – was hiding in a house at Asofan.

A police patrol team was dispatched to the place and their attempt to apprehend Kingsley led to the death of Corporal Francis Abaloo. He was shot by Kingsley before he escaped.

When a search was conducted in his room, the Master card belonging to Mr Otis Peprah was discovered. Two pairs of shoes, a pump action gun, two locally manufactured pistols with 16 live ammunitions, a dagger and torchlight were discovered in a bag in his room.

On July 22, 2016, police investigations led to the arrest of Edem Kelvin Appiah in Kumasi after he had allegedly taken part in another robbery operation.

Upon investigations, he mentioned Kingsley Yeboah as the ring leader, adding that after the robbery the items were shared in Kingsley’s house and that each was given GH¢100 as transport.
