In a press statement signed by the Acting Director-General of Public Affairs, ACP Kwesi Ofori said one injured person is receiving medical care under guard.
The statement said the robbery gang “opened fire on the police when they were closing in on them, leading to the death of Iddrisu and Dramani Iddi when the police fired back.”
“The alleged notorious leader of the gang, Ali Igudu, sustained gunshot wounds and is responding to treatment under a Police guard.”
Ali Igudu, according to the statement, is suspected to be the “mastermind behind the murder of one Alhaji Ousman Amadu and Fuseini Galagala, among others.”
