The PRO of the Eastern Regional Police Command, DSP Ebenezer Tetteh, said the exercise was successful, adding the suspects were being processed for court.


The suspects wore police and military uniforms during operations under the guise of executing legitimate security duties.

They were, however, arrested by the Taifa Police on August 22, 2018 after robbing a bank customer of Ghc7, 000.
