Karim Jampo, 20-year-old electrician resident at the Konkomba market in Accra, has been busted by the Suhum Police for allegedly stealing a motorbike belonging to a National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) staff in the Suhum Municipality of the Eastern Region.
Briefing DAILY GUIDE, the Suhum Police Commander, Superintendent Yahaya Muchiraru said the suspect is a native of Damba, a village in the Northern Region but stays at Konkomba market in Accra.
The Suhum Police chief noted that around 2 am on Wednesday, the suspect entered the house of the Assistant Public Relations Officer of the NHIS, Washington Amoah, at Newtown, a suburb of Suhum, while the victim was asleep and took away his motorbike.
