Two Nigerians based in Ghana have been arrested for a broad daylight robbery that occurred yesterday afternoon.
The two suspected robbers reportedly deflated the tyres of their victim at the Flagstaff House traffic light and snatched GH¢6,000 (N428, 000) he had withdrawn from a bank at Osu.
Ghana police identified the two suspects as Ndubueze Odoemenam and Chiokoko Amadie, pictured above, and say they trailed their victim from a bank in Osu.
According to 3news.com, the victim had stopped at the traffic light at Flagstaff House but suddenly realised that he had a flat tyre when the green light came on. The victim, the police said, pulled over to the side to check what happened.
Just as the victim got down to check the fault, two guys on a motorbike zoomed past him and snatched the money he had withdrawn together with the envelope.
ACP Frimpong said another motor bike rider pursued the robbers and hit the one riding the bike with his helmet leading to an accident at 37 Military Hospital.
The accident reportedly caused the money to spread on the road attracting commuters, some of whom began to mete instance justice on the three riders. They were, however, saved by ASP Nanka Bruce, who was returning from a duty point.
GH¢5,250 (N374,000) out of the GH¢6,000 (N428,000) belonging to the victim was also retrieved.
