I used catapult not gun – Robbery suspect tells Police
A robbery suspect has confessed to the Ashanti
Regional Police Command that he used a catapult
and not a locally made pistol as stated by the
police to rob a victim.

Emmanuel Osei Badu Abdulai, 21 years, alias “Touch
shatter” was confessing to the police when he was
arrested together with Ahmed Dauda, his accomplice
alias “Okrati” meaning cat’s head.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Osei Kwaku
Ampofo Duku, the Second-in-command of the Ashanti
Regional Police Command, in a briefing told the
press in Kumasi that on May 05, at about
0430hours, Ahmed Dauda was arrested by the police
in connection with an alleged stealing and during
investigation, it came out that they had earlier
in the day robbed one Seth Kwaku Frimpong with a
locally made pistol.

A Nokia mobile phone, one locally-made pistol and
a live ammunition were seized from them.

Contact numbers on the phone were called and one
of them responded, who informed the police that
the owner was robbed of it in addition to
GH¢108.00 at Agric Nzema, a suburb of Kumasi.

Victim, Frimpong was asked to go to the Afasiebo
police station near Kwadaso in Kumasi, where he
identified Dauda as his attacker.

He later led the police to arrest Abdulai at
Kwadaso, his hide-out.

ACP Duku said the two would soon be arraigned.
