Two suspected armed robbers have been shot dead with one other hospitalized following a Police operation in Bole in the Savannah Region.

According to a statement from the Ghana Police Service that confirmed the news, a combined team of highly trained Operations and Intelligence Team broke into a criminal cell in the Bono East and Savannah Regions after weeks of painstaking investigations and covert operations.

After arriving on the scene, the gang of robbers who were allegedly planning another robbery attack opened fire on the police.

The exchange of fire that ensued between the security agency and the robbers resulted in the death of two robbers, Iddrisu and Dramani Iddi.

The alleged notorious gang leader, Ali Igudu, sustained gunshot wounds and is responding to treatment under a Police guard.
