Rabbiu aka Raba has been described as a millionaire by the Accra Regional Police Command during a tour of one of his properties. He was said to have bought a parcel of land on which he was developing a storey building at the cost of GH¢21,000 and had sunk several thousands of cedis into the building which is currently under construction.
A background check on Rabiu indicated that as a child, he spent most of his time in correctional homes because he was delinquent. Rabiu who was about 41 years old, was born in the sprawling community of Mamobi, near Nima in Accra. The deputy Accra Regional Police Commander, ACP Yohunu, told Daily Guide that the deceased robber had gained notoriety for attacking banks.
Three times he had been arrested and three times he had escaped, but was not so lucky the fourth time and died after being dazed with several bullets at Ogbojo last Friday. At the tour of one of his properties which is situated at Agbogbloshie Madina, behind Action School, residents of the location were shocked when the police and the press stormed the area asking questions about the owner of the storey building. The building is just a walking distance from the residence of the MD of Louis Gas Limited, where Rabiu attacked and killed him.
A resident who claimed he knew the deceased robber said he was very unassuming. He came around 7.00or 8.00pm on motorbike to inspect the property and leaves. Usually he greeted by waving at us and then did the inspection and left immediately,” a resident told the police.
Another said, “I am really surprised! We would have caused his arrest long time ago eh!”
Interestingly, Rabiu’s property is sandwiched between two strong charismatic churches but he always went unnoticed. ACP Yohunu said Rabiu had spent about eighty per cent of his life time in jail and was a menace to society.
