According to police reports, the suspect, aided by his accomplices, is suspected to have been responsible for the theft of over 20 cows from various herders in the area.

As reported to Adom News, their modus operandi is to sell stolen cows to butchers at Awutu Bawjiase and use portions of the proceeds to purchase cows from the Northern Region for his father’s livestock.

The incident has baffled other herders in the area, who say Umaru’s father has a livestock count of more than 1,000 cows.

They noted that while their cattle were being robbed in the dead of the night, Umaru and his father had never reported any theft.

One Umar Insusah told Adom News that the suspect would often be spotted parading the market during the day, spotting the large cows in each herd, after which they would return at night to steal.

How was Umaru caught?

According to Umar Inusah, on one of Umaru’s expeditions, a farmer had spotted him and his accomplices behaving suspiciously and alerted a police officer in the area.

The police, after following them closely and confirming their nefarious activity, swooped in and arrested them.

Thief made to dance to Kpanlogo beat

YEN.om.gh reported that a young man ran out of luck on his thievery endeavour after he was nabbed in one of the Ga communities in Accra.

In an awkwardly rare situation, the young man, who allegedly stole some items, was made to dance for several minutes as punishment for his nefarious behaviour.

In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, the yet-to-be-identified man was captured dancing to some Kpanlogo beat.

While the alleged thief was dancing to atone for his sins, a male voice was heard in the background of the video encouraging and cheering him on in a seemingly sarcastic manner.
