A young police officer lost his life today at Korle Bu when he was on security duty on a Bullion van that was transporting an undisclosed amount of money.
The unidentified armed men, on not less than three motorbikes, crossed the bullion van and started shooting sporadically. In the process, two persons were shot dead instantly – the police officer on escort duty, and an unidentified woman who was affected during the shooting.
The bullion driver sustained injuries and has been sent to the Korle Bu hospital for treatment. Two tellers who were in the bullion escaped unhurt. The weapon of the policeman was also taken away, together with an unspecified amount of money.
The downside of the story is not only how volatile Ghana’s security system has become but also the sorrow and tears that the death of the young police officer has brought to family and friends.
The young police officer has been identified as Kobby Mando and the photos and video below show how lively he had always been before he was unfortunately killed today.
