The suspects, Mawuli Amegbo and Sulley Mohammed, snatched the motorbike on June 13, 2021, when they attacked the victim with machetes. On June

A search conducted on the suspects also led to the retrieval of a machete, which together with the motorbike are with the police and the two accomplices to the suspects are
at large, but are being pursued by the police, while the suspects too are in police custody being processed for court. The police in the statement called on the public to report incidents of crime to the police and cooperate with the security agency for investigations to be carried through. The Police in the statement said this particular
incident was not reported until the victim sighted the suspects and his motorbike two days after the robbery incident. Several persons have also been arrested for snatching motorbikes from their owners. In February 2020, an unemployed man was jailed for ten years for snatching a motorbike from an ‘Okada’ rider at Adentan
in Accra. The convict, also according to police report, engaged the services of an Okada rider around 6:30 pm on February 10, 2020, from Adentan to Ashongman. On their arrival at the outskirts of Ashongman, the suspect then blindfolded the complainant with a handkerchief smeared with a powdery substance, the police said in a
report. The rider then fell from the bike unconscious too while the convict then bolted with the Jaojue motorbike with registration number M-19-GR 6400. The Lakeside Police also subsequently arrested Francis Osei on the February 13, 2020, and put him before court where he was tried and sentenced.
