According to information provided by the Police, Agriwen Owen was spotted by the Police patrol team on high-speed riding an unregistered Yamaha AG motorbike.

Agriwen Owen was sent to the Navrongo Division for further action to be taken.

Police Fight Armed Robbery

Police in Ghana have said they are committed to fighting crime and reducing armed robbery attacks to the barest minimum.

This comes after daylight robberies were recorded in several parts of Accra including Kwashieman, Weija and Tema.

The Police anti armed robbery unit has since deployed men to fight the menace in order to ensure the safety of Ghanaians.
