Accra, Jan. 28, 2018 (AltAfrika)-Eleven people suspected of being involved in the murder of a police inspector last Sunday at a Ghanaian police station have been arrested, according to a release signed by Assistant Commissioner of Police David Eklu.
The armed gang had stormed the Kwabenya police station, located in the suburb of capital city Accra where they broke into the cells and freed seven suspects in detention, killing a police inspector in the process.
“Five suspects were arrested by the ACCRA police at Kasoa, near the capital in the early hours Saturday. This brings the number of arrests in the Kwabenya incident to 11 as six persons had been arrested earlier last week,” the release said.
It said three of the first arrests were those who had escaped from detention while the other three were part of those who facilitated their escape.
