Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

The Northern Regional Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Angwubutoge Awuni has challenged police personnel in Nakpanduri to capture the notorious armed robber in the town either dead or alive.

The notorious robber, who has been identified as Johnson Kombien alias Burger, is alleged to be terrorising both the security forces and civilian population in the Bunkpurugu/Yunyoo District and nearby towns.

He carries more than two weapons, one of which is an AK47 which he forcefully took from the police charge office in Nakpanduri on one of his robbery expeditions.

With these weapons, Burger, pursued his victims, most of whom were traders, robbed them of their possessions and sometimes injured them in the process.

He recently shot one of his victims in the left leg and the victim is still receiving medical care.

According to police personnel and residents of Napkanduri, Burger had vanishing powers which enabled him to outwit the police anytime they pursued him.

During a working tour to the East Mamprusi and Bunkpurugu/Yunyoo districts, ACP Awuni admonished the police in the two districts and the adjoining ones to be on high alert for this notorious robber.

“I have been told he carries out his nefarious activities in broad day light with impunity. It is either you bring him down first or he would rather bring you down. Remember that the first law of life is self-defence,” he cautioned.

Briefing the commander on the activities of the suspect, one of the district police personnel, Corporal Eric Obbo said the police were very eager to capture the robber, but that they initially lacked the moral courage.

He said now that the commander had gingered them up, they would do their best to capture Burger .

Corporal Obbo mentioned that Burger usually appeared on market days fiully armed.

He said because of the threats of Burger, indiscipline was so high in the area, because people used him to protect themselves from police apprehension.

ACP Awuni later visited the chief’s palace, where he addressed a gathering of the people and entreated them to share information with the police about the robber.

He also cautioned them not to connive with the robber since anyone caught in that respect would not also be spared.
