  • Bullion van attack: Police suspects indict another officer

    The two Police officers who were arrested in connection with the GCB Bullion Van attack at Donkorkrom have accused another police corporal of aiding their escape.

    The officers were picked up for their alleged roles in the robbery incident that led to the killing of the driver of the van.

    They earlier escaped from custody but were subsequently arrested by their colleagues.

    The development led to angry residents burning the Police station in the community amidst protest.

    The officers who were arraigned before an Mpraeso magistrate court today fingered one Corporal Christopher Babudu, who was escorting them, of aiding their escape.

    Meanwhile, the IGP has announced that the Police officers who helped in the arrest of the suspects have been promoted by the service.

    “It is gratifying to note that the patrol team that effected the arrest of their colleagues have been promoted effective yesterday to their next ranks. In addition to maintaining general law and order in the country, one cannot lose sight of the fact that we have to also ensure that the December 2016 election will be delivered peacefully and successfully. On that score, I can assure the people of Ghana that we are committed to attaining that feat. With the support of all Ghanaians, we shall overcome,” the IGP noted.

  • Two arrested police officers escape

    The three escaped at Nkawkaw when they were being transferred to Koforidua, the Eastern regional capital.

    Sources say the suspects were able to flee when the vehicle transferring them stopped to refill at a fuel station in Nkawkaw.

    The three were suspected on August 15, 2016, after an attack of a GCB Bank bullion van at Maame Krobo in the Afram Plains South District of the Eastern Region.

    The incident led to the death of the driver of the van. Another police officer who was escorting the vehicle was also wounded in the attack.

    The bullion van, however, had no money in it at the time of the attack.
