Accra, Sept 6, GNA - An identification parade for 28 suspected armed robbers would be held at the Criminal and Investigation Division (CID) Headquarters, Accra on Thursday September 8, this year.

It said "all those who have been victims or have information that would help the police should contact the officer in-charge of the Anti-Robbery unit at the CID Headquarters or the Police Public Affairs Directorate from tomorrow Wednesday September 7, to Thursday September 8 before the parade at 1400."
