Police Capture Prime Suspect in Togo in Connection with Ablekuma Bullion Van Robbery

One of the main suspects in the Ablekuma bullion van robbery, believed to be of Togolese nationality, has been apprehended while attempting to flee the country after the incident. Blessing Njoma was captured in the Togolese town of Asigame by the Ghana Police Service in collaboration with Interpol in Togo.

The arrest, which took place on Saturday, July 15, 2023, followed a tip-off received by the authorities. Njoma played a significant role in the bullion van robbery in Ablekuma, Greater Accra Region, during which a police officer named Callistus Amoah lost his life.

The suspect, Blessing Njoma, a Nigerian national, was found in Asigame market in Lome, Togo. Following the arrest, a search of his person yielded no incriminating evidence, but old bullet scars were discovered on his right shoulder.

Njoma claimed to have been shot in Nigeria during a previous altercation in 2014. Authorities are currently making arrangements to search his place of residence before extraditing him to Ghana.

Earlier this month, two other suspects, Benjamin Ojogbe and Rashid Abdul, were arrested for their alleged involvement in the robbery and the killing of the police officer.

Legal proceedings are underway for their accomplices in court.
