The Bibiani Police has mounted a search for a driver, Kwame Opoku Richard, in connection with the robbery of GH¢180,000  belonging to two Chinese, last Monday, in the  Wassa Ankwawso forest reserves,  near Sefwi Bekwai, in the Western Region.

According to the police, Opoku Richard, black in complexion, is about 1.68 metres in height, with brown eyes and  tattoo marks on the arms, can be located in Kumasi, around the Magazine areas and in Accra.

“The Bibiani Police are looking for Richard in connection with the robbery involving GH¢180,000 in the Wassa Ankwawso forest reserves,” Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Olivia Ewurabena Adiku said.

Briefing the Ghanaian Times,  she said,  at about 6.30pm, on Monday, March 5,  Chin Kuwan, 35, and Chin Laun, 30, reported to the Sefwi Bekwai Police District Command that  about 6pm  on that day, they were on board their white Mazda pickup with registration No. GN 9972 – 16, driven by Kwame Opoku Richard.

She said the complainants, who were travelling from Wassa Akropong through Diaso  and Wassa Ankwawso to Wassa Saraha, carried  GH¢180,000.00 on their  vehicle.

On reaching a section of the road in the Wassa Ankwawso forest reserve, ASP Adiku said Opoku  Richard  suddenly stopped the vehicle and two men, with one wielding a locally manufactured pistol, emerged from the bush  and  forcibly dragged out the Chinese  from the vehicle and  ordered  the driver to  speed  away with the car and booty.

“The vehicle was retrieved at a spot about three kilometres from the scene. The driver is highly suspected to be an accomplice,” she added.
