The suspect, identified as , 23, was apprehended on March 29, 2016 after being on the police wanted list for some months now.
Efforts are being made by the police to apprehend Akwei’s other accomplices whose names were only given as Michael Appiah aka Not Nice and one Anago Macho, a Nigerian.
Some wrappers of dry leaves suspected to be Indian hemp (wee) were retrieved in the suspect’s pocket. Confirming the story to Daily Guide, ASP Effia Tengey, Accra Regional police spokeswoman, said Benjamin Akwei and his gang emerged last year after the arrest and prosecution of four suspected armed robbers who were terrorizing residents of the area.
Their modus operandi was attacking mostly women in their rooms with machetes and other deadly weapons, sometimes rape them and take away their valuables.
In the course of investigations eight female victims, including two bankers and a nurse who claimed to have been robbed, visited the police station where Akwei had been sent, and during an identification parade, identified him as being among the three armed robbers who attacked them.
When Akwei was interrogated, he admitted the offence and further led the police to the victims’ houses to demonstrate how they (he and his accomplices) entered the houses and raped and robbed their victims as well.
