Ashanti Police arrest two for Kwamang Bank robbery

arrest jailThe Ashanti Regional Police have arrested two suspected armed robbers in connection with a robbery incident at Kwamang Rural Bank which resulted in the death of a staff of the Bank.

Issa Amadu and Mamud Adams were suspected to have shot the staff of the Bank, traumatizing two others after robbing the Bank of an undisclosed amount.
Before the attack on the bank, the suspects were granted bail for snatching a motorbike and allegedly attacking travelers in a highway robbery at Nsuta-Asuafua-Atwea.

The deputy Ashanti Region Police Commander ACP Osei Ampofoh Duku said investigations have shown that the same motorbike snatched was used in the bank robbery by the same suspects.

“The teacher who lost his motorbike in the March 31 robbery travelled after the incident and so could not assist the police in their investigation by production of papers covering the motorbike.

“However, he returned last week to present the documents to show ownership of the motorbike which had been impounded and which were used by these two suspects.

“So the suspects reported last Friday and were rearrested and detained. They are suspected to have committed the Kwamang rural bank robbery and we are working on that,” he said.
