The Director-General of Police Public Affairs, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP), Kwesi Ofori has revealed that the two police officers in connection with bullion van robberies who were sh0t dead were leading the police to hideout of other suspects at Ashaiman.
The two suspects were arrested by the police to assist in investigation into the recent bullion van robbery attacks in the Greater Accra Region.
ACP Kwesi Ofori speaking in an interview on Joy FM on Wednesday, March 9 said, “an intelligence-led field operation took off and in the process, there were heavy exchange of fire and the two sustained gunshot injuries and were taken to the police hospital in Accra but they later passed on.”
“The police were shot at, there was exchange of fire and they were injured in the process and they were sent to the hospital and they passed on.”
So let us understand this, that in police operations, they are high risks in nature and at the time the raid took place it was very serious and well-targeted operations and even as I speak to you, we’ve arrested four policemen, one other civilian and they will be put before court,” Mr. Ofori added.
