And its a robbery saga on prominent people in government. Two Members of Parliament and a judge have reported to have been attacked by robbers on Saturday, they are: National Democratic Congress (NDC) MP for Amasaman, Mr Emmanuel Nii Okai Laryea, NDC MP for North Dayi, Mr George Loh, and the High Court Judge, Mr Richard Adjei Frimpong.
No arrests have been made on the three attacks so far since the police have no leads as to whom the culprits are or even why they are targeting high-profile individuals to carry out their evil acts on.
MP for North Dayi, Mr George Loh was robbed at his residence in Adjiringanor, near Madina. He was said to have been asleep when they broke into his house. When he awoke to their presence and attempted to call the police, the culprits quickly left the house. They made away with his laptop and the GH¢4,000 he had wanted to use in paying the workers on the construction site of his house. Lucky for the MP, he was left unharmed.
In the same vein, High court Judge, Mr Frimpong, was attacked by robbers at his residence at Abokobi, near Accra. They equally made away with some valuable items including some amount of money.
Mr Laryea on his part said robbers invaded his house at New Achimota in his absence, and took some of his important belongings. According to (ASP) Mrs Affia Tenge, Accra Regional Police Command Public Relations Officer (PRO), Mr Laryea’s houseboy said he woke up the next morning to notice their house had been burgled. She also said the boy claimed the thieves had accessed the house through an adjoining house.
A burglary proof on one of the windows in the house had been cut and it is suspected the culprits penetrated through the windows. The incident was reported to the Achimota Mile 7 Police, and a team of police personnel had since visited the scene to carry out investigations. Items like a 32-inch Samsung TV and wristwatches, were said to be stolen.
So far there has been no possible clues or details of the culprits, although the police are still carrying out investigations.
