29 prostitutes get arrested for ‘plotting’ robberies in Kwabenya

The Greater Accra Regional Police Command has arrested Twenty-Nine (29) female commercial sex workers for allegedly masterminding a series of robbery attacks at Kwabenya and its environs in Accra.

Four men have also been arrested for allegedly aiding the women in the robbery attacks.

Narrating how these prostitutes carry out their operations to Citi News, the Madina Divisional Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Nantongma Aggrey Yakubu, said “the intelligence we gathered indicated that, the robbery happening at Ashomang estates is being caused by sex workers. What is happening is that, the unsuspecting members of the public send these sex workers to their houses and use various methods.”

He added that, “the number one mode of operation is that, these sex workers tell their customers they have not made full payment and they will be exchanging words and in the process, these sex workers call the other armed robbers to attack the victims. The second method these sex workers use is that, when they visit the houses, they look out for valuable items and take them away.”

He further stated that, the suspects were arrested following a covert operation by the Police.

Dozens arrested

On Monday, Police in Accra also arrested some 29 persons, including a national security officer, suspected to have committed various crimes in the national capital.

The persons were alleged to have been involved in various crimes including break-ins, acts of fraud and theft at Madina, a suburb of Accra.

The Madina Divisional Police commander, Chief Superintendent, Yakubu Aggrey Nangtomah, told Citi News the arrests followed an operation at Madina and its environs to rid the area off criminals ahead of the Ramadan celebrations on Wednesday.
