A team of police officers, acting on information that a robbery suspect, Nuhu Sule, was hiding at a ghetto at Agbogbloshie with items he had stolen during a robbery operation the previous night, were attacked by unknown assailants.

They called for reinforcement, leading to the arrest of 15 suspects believed to have masterminded the attack.
The suspects are currently in police custody pending further investigation, according to a statement signed by ACP David Eklu, Director General, Public Affairs.
