The ringleader who has been named as Yakubu Oparipa sustained gunshot wound after an attempt to open fire at the Police team. He is currently on admission at a hospital.
Back in 2014, Yakubu Iddrisu known popularly as Oparipa, a popular NDC sympathizer was accused by an NPP Youth group of Shooting into a crowd revelling at a pub at Aboabo, a suburb of Tamale, wounding nine people.
The crack Police investigation team retrieved the two stolen weapons, the camouflage military uniform and mask they wore for the operation from the room of one of the suspects.
A deep throat source indicates that some of the suspects arrested were part of some young men who issued death threat to the deceased Policewoman who was a Court Warrant Officer(CWO) after she denied them access to their friend in Police cells some weeks ago.
