JUST IN: Fresh Trouble For Bullion Van ‘Robbers’; Details Dropped-CHECK.

The woes of the four junior rank police officers embroiled in the bullion van robberies in Accra have increased, as they have been slapped with two more charges, and put before another Circuit Court judge.

The four, Constable Yaro Afisu Ibrahim, Constable Albert Ofosu, aka Cypher, Constable Richard Boadu, aka Osor, and Constable Rabiu Jambedu, who are already facing charges of attempted robbery and abetment of robbery have now been charged with additional two counts of conspiracy to robbery and robbery.

The junior police officers, according to court documents, attacked and robbed a bullion van with registration number GT 3521-X on February 27, 2021, at Kingsway in Accra,  and made away with GH¢80,400.

Court documents state that the accused persons, after the alleged robbery, fled the scenes on two motorbikes, which were waiting for them and ridden by Constable Yaro Afisu Ibrahim and Constable Albert Ofosu.

The police officers, together with some others who are on the run, are said to have taken part in a series of robbery activities within Accra between February 2021 and February 2022.

Lawyers for the accused persons had pleaded with the court to grant them bail, pending the determination of the case, assuring the court that they will show up for the trial.
