Nima-Mamobi shooting: Police arrest one of the suspected ring leaders, Kumodzi.

The police have detained one of the two alleged kingpins in the shooting incident in Nima, Accra.

The suspect, Ibrahim Hussain alias Kumodzi, the “Kumodzi gang’s” commander, has been detained to aid in the investigation into the recent infamous Mamobi-Nima violence on January 18, 2022.

Ali Awudu aka Bombom, another key figure in the crime, is still being hunted by by the cops, along with other suspects.

The Accra Circuit Court 2 granted bail to 8 of the 12 accused suspects accused of being involved in the gun violence in Nima-Mamobi, Accra, last month.

The eight (8) accused defendants were each given GH80,000 bail with two (2) sureties by the court presided over by Her Honour, Rosemary Baah Torsu.

They must also sign a good-behavior bond and report to the Ghana Police Department’s Nima Divisional Headquarters twice a week.

Abdul Gafaru Maham, Ibrahim Moro alias Jalo, Atarouwa Bassam, and Abdul Mumuni Gariba were all given bail.

Mohammed Saabi Barinu alias Namer, Bashiru Ganiru, and Illiasu Salim Issa Seidu are the others.

The Prosecutor, Chief Inspector Denis Terkpetey Esq., requested that Aziz Suleman alias Rambo and Farouk Dauda alias Omoni be remanded.

He claimed the two were inextricably tied to the charges.

Ali Awudu alias Bombon and Ibrahim Hussain alias Kumodzi, the alleged ringleaders of the gun mayhem, are still on the loose.

The twelve (12) accused persons are charged with three counts of criminal offenses: rioting with weapons, conspiracy to riot with weapons, and inflicting harm to one Frimpong Boateng and one Shaibu Abdul Razak, according to an amended charge sheet filed on Tuesday, February 1, 2022.

The lawsuit was postponed until February 15, 2022.
