The suspect Mumuni Iddrisu, was picked up yesterday from his hideout upon a tip-off.
Regional Correspondent Rafik Salam reported that the suspect was being transferred from Gbollu, where he was arrested, to the regional capital Wa, for further interrogation.

The Deputy Upper West Regional Minister, Caeser Kaleb, who disclosed this to the media said security was being beefed up along the borders.
