The Ashanti Regional Police Command has arrested twelve persons suspected to be kidnappers involved in recent cases of robberies and kidnapping of Fulani headsmen and their dependents around the Ejura, Mampong and Akomadan areas of the Ashanti Region.

The suspects, who are also believed to be Fulani, are Bube Buru alias Jawuga 29, Abdulai Mahamadu 29, Karim Abdulai 37, Sulemana Ali 32, Yusif Musah 40 and Halidu Ali 25.

The others are Ali Adama 40, Abubakari Gariba 20, Gariba Maanu, 40, Bella Amadu 27, Alidu Amadu 18, and Ali Abraham 20.

In a press release signed by Supt Godwin Ahianyo, Ashanti Regional Public Relations Officer (PRO), he said the twelve suspects had already been identified by their victims, and have since been remanded by district courts in their various communities.

The statement, however, indicated that the police suspect them of other similar crimes, therefore, are urging all persons within the Ashanti Region, particularly in and around Ejura, Mampong and

Akomadan, who have been victims of robberies and kidnapping by Fulani herdsmen in particular, to report to the Regional Police Headquarters to assist in investigations.

The public is again encouraged to report any person(s) suspected to be involved in robberies and kidnapping around Ejura, Sekyeredumase, Mampong and Akomadan to the nearest police station or call police on the telephone numbers 0299207770, 18555 or 191.
