Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Simon Denteh, the Asokwa District Crime Officer, who confirmed this to the Ghana News Agency (GNA), said Edward Jones, arrived in Ghana for a visit on October 28, and was staying with a friend, also a foreigner, at the Kyirapatre Estate in Kumasi.

The two foreign nationals were taking a stroll, when they were suddenly attacked and robbed by the suspects.

The Crime Officer said Ayim and Ali were arrested at their Asafo hideout barely 24 hours after the crime, and that they acted on a tip off.
