It is gathered that the criminals broke into the house of Dr. Bawumia at Kperiga, a suburb of Walewale in the West Mamprusi Municiplity of North East Region. They made away with television sets, decoders and other valuables.
The Walewale Division Police Commander, DSP David Noble when reached, disclosed that he was on leave and was not abreast with details of the incident and directed TheNewsGh.com to his assistant.
Meanwhile, TheNewsGh.com has confirmed that 4 persons have since been arrested in connection with the crime and are currently in police custody assisting with investigations.
Police declined disclosing the identities of all four suspects who it is gathered could soon be arraigned before court over the alleged involvement.
At the time of filing of this report, the fence wall at the home of the Vice President was being reinforced by increasing its height to avert a similar break in in the future with reports suggesting that other houses close were also broken into by the criminals.
