A social media user has claimed that Ghana Police Service is framing his brother over the bullion van robbery saga despite evidence that absolves him.
The Social media user, one Recogniz Real who is a brother to one Affisu Yaro known on social media as Hafiz Elien, a police officer currently on trial along with 4 others for the Bullion van robbery; his brother his Affisu is innocent.
In a post, Recogniz who is an active Facebook user claimed police picked up and killed the actual murderers of the police man escorting the Bullion van. He alleged the police picked the alleged actual murderers at 2.30am and “killed” them while framing his brother whom he claims was seen on CCTV on guard duties at the same time.
He further claimed on the day of the another robbery allegedly pinned on the his brother, he has another alibi. He claims an Uncle who was due to travel out of the country couldn’t leave and spent time with he and the said Affisu.
The police have not reacted to the development as investigation continues into the case.
But MyNewsGh.com checks revealed the arrest of Affisu was related to an attempted robbery at North Kaneshie for which an Accra Circuit Court denied him and his accomplices bail.
According to the state prosecutor, it would be dangerous to allow such a criminal suspect back into society.
Albert Ofosu, Affisu Yaro together with two other police officers and a civilian were arrested over their alleged involvement in the recent robbery attacks on bullion vans in Accra.
It emerged during proceedings that Albert Ofosu and Affisu Yaro Ibrahim were charged with an attempt to commit crime and robbery at North Kaneshie, while Richard Boadu, Razak Alhassan, and Rabiu Jambedu, were charged with abetment of crime and robbery.
According to the court, the suspects must remain in police custody for further investigations. The case has thus been adjourned to 28th March 2022.
