The most wanted criminal in Kumasi in the Ashanti region, Baba Musah, has been arrested by the police, YEN.com.gh has learned.
The anti-robbery taskforce of the Ashanti regional police arrested Musah after he has been on their wanted list for more than six years.
Information available shows that he has been declared wanted even during the time when COP Kofi Boakye led the regional police taskforce.
The suspect, according to the regional police command, was arrested on December 15, 2019, at Sawaba, a suburb in the Asokore Mampong municipality around 4 pm.
Police sources say several robberies and violent crimes including murder cases have been filed against the suspect.
The Ashanti regional Police command will at a later date brief the media on the arrest of Baba Musah, starrfm.com.gh reports.
In other news, YEN.com.gh has learned that a 40-year-old trader, Doris Opoku, is in police grips for defrauding a couple.
The victims, both service officers, bought a house valued at GHc95,000 from Opoku, only to learn that it has been sold to someone else.
Opoku has therefore been charged with defrauding by false pretence and has been arraigned before a circuit court in Kumasi.
She was then admitted to bail in the sum of GHc95,000 with two sureties, one of which is to be justified by the court, which is presided over by Mary Nsenkyere.
This was after she had pleaded not guilty to the count but she is scheduled to reappear before the court on December 19, 2019.
