Yusif, also known as "Director", was said to have escaped to Niger when Atta Ayi was arrested. He returned to Ghana on Monday and was arrested upon a tip-off. The Asawasi District Police Commander was not available yesterday to comment on the story but a source there did.According to the source, Yusif claimed he had known Ataa Ayi for some six years and together they had engaged in many armed robberies in some parts of the country. He claimed that he lived in Accra with him during that period. Ataa Ayi shot into the public eye when he was arrested in March 2005. Yusif, who is in the custody of the Asawasi Police, is still being investigated and he is believed to have given the police some leads into criminal activities in the country.
