Mr. Aryeh was last week spotted by a military detachment around the Peduase Presidential Lodge. He was reportedly fully garbed and was driving a private car. He is said to have quickly turned around and sped off when he suspected he had been spotted by the military detachment around Peduase Lodge.
He was promptly given a hot chase and was caught in Accra.
At the time of his arrest, the rough Delta Force operative was having in his possession two different types of pistols, two handcuffs with keys, a jackknife, two fake Canadian Officer’s ID, huge sums of money among other things.
It is believed that Mr. Ayeh is part of a detachment of the Delta Force that specializes in arm robbery, assassination, kidnapping and other crimes.
