The robbers allegedly shot dead a policeman on duty before bolting with their booty.

According to sources, money stolen from the refinery was hidden in the bush, but when they went for it later, they found only GH¢450,000, which they shared.

A manhunt for the robbers on May 24, 2018, led to the death of two others, Kojo Amponsah and Nathaniel Abu Udomah, who resisted arrest and rather exchanged fire with the police.

After that incident, Osman vanished from the police radar, as his whereabouts became a mystery.

According to the Director-General of the Police Intelligence Directorate (PID), Commissioner of Police (COP), Mr Christian Tetteh Yohunu, Osman was picked up after intelligence showed that he had been detained at the Odorkor Police Station.

This was after he had been grabbed for causing unlawful harm, a crime to which he confessed.
