The Police, through a specialised intelligence operation, October 13, 2022 arrested two armed robbers and shot dead one other at Asuofua Asamang in the Ashanti Region.

The deceased, who was later identified as Issaka Muniru was shot when he attempted to fire at the Police during the operation. He was rushed to the hospital for treatment but was pronounced dead on arrival.

The Police also succeeded in arresting two of his accomplices, Kwaku Boateng alias Form Noede and Kojo Gyamfi. The two are currently in Police custody and will be put before the court to face justice.

Police retrieved a Smith & Wesson SD40 VE pistol which was used to fire at the officers, and thirteen (13) rounds of live ammunition.

The deceased, Issaka Muniru and his robbery syndicate have been involved in a series of robberies within the Kumasi Metropolis and its environs for years.

Before his demise, Issaka Muniru was standing trial with three other accomplices Ernest Agyei Badu @ gangster, Rider and MBY at the Nkawie Circuit Court for robbing one Pastor Emmanuel Barfour Awuah of Abuakwa Abakomadi at gun point on May 26, 2021, and making away with his two (2) gold wrist watches, mobile phones and an unspecified amount of money.


The deceased was granted bail by the court but he jumped the bail and a bench warrant was therefore issued for his arrest. His accomplices are still attending trial at the court.

In another robbery where Issaka Muniru, now deceased, was named as the gang leader, three other members of his gang, Charles Kojo Fosu, Yaw Anim and Paul Osafo were arrested by the police but he managed to escape. The three suspects have since been remanded into prison custody.


The Police administration have commended the Ashanti Regional Police Command, especially personnel of the Regional Intelligence and Operations teams who conducted the operation.

The Service has also assured the public that they will continue to carry out their constitutional mandate of protecting life and property and maintaining law and order even at the peril of their lives.
