Authorities in the Bosomtwe District of the Ashanti Region have reported the apprehension of two alleged robbers known as ‘Demon Town’ and his accomplice.
The duo was identified in a viral video where they were seen threatening to stab anyone opposing their attempts to snatch belongings.
One of them is heard saying: “Have you seen the bag behind me? We are going to gather and deposit you in there. For pistol for real, if you don’t leave it, we are stabbing you. Demon, won’t you tell them?
After a brief intervention by the cutlass-wielding ally, he continued: “Look at my dreadlocks, look at it, do you need to be told? Aputuogya gangsters, this is who we are, we will stab the eye of anyone who resists.”
As per a police situational report obtained by MyNewsGh.com, the Kuntenase District Police Patrol team, acting on a tip-off, conducted a raid on a house in Aputuogya suspected to be harboring the two individuals.
Ibrahim Mohammed, aged 23 and one of the suspects featured in the viral video, was handed over to the police by the local residents who had earlier raided the mentioned house.
Upon questioning, Ibrahim Mohammed stated that he is originally from Adansi Fomena Kusa but resides in Madina, Accra. He claimed to have been invited to the Bosomtwe District about a month ago by the other suspect in the video, identified as Kwame Sarpong, who is a distant family member.
The unemployed accomplice, who was on the run, has been apprehended by the police.
Authorities have indicated that they will interrogate the owner of the house where the suspects were harbored.
Meanwhile, Ibrahim Mohammed is expected to face court proceedings.
