Mohammedu Fuseini was arrested on September 14, 2018 as part of a special operation by the Police to clamp down on highway robbers terrorising residents in the Affram Plains and Kwahu enclave.

The suspects were Mohammadu Aliu, 20, Abubarkar Saddick, 25, Gagli Ali, 40, Osmanu Mohammadu,33, Osmanu Aliu, 17, Jalo Ishaiku, 58 and Umaro Sanda, 25.
According to the Public Relations Officer of the Eastern Regional Police Command, DSP Ebenezer Tetteh, the suspects are believed to be part of the gang that have been robbing traders and commuters on the Kwahu Tafo – Adawso motor road.
The arrest follows demonstration by drivers and residents over increasing highway robbery attacks on the Kwahu- Tafo Road.
The Affram Plains is one of the food basket areas of the country producing varied food crops, fish, livestock among others hence attracts many traders from across the country.
The robbers appear to have taken advantage of the brisk nature of business activities in the area and attacking traders on frequent basis.
