No arrest in bullion van robbery – CID boss

Residents and family, who were still in a state of shock over his death, struggled with tears as they file past his body.

The policeman, who was on a bullion van escort duty, and a hawker, Afua Nadu, were shot to death on Monday, June 14.

This was after armed robbers trailed the van in a taxi and on a motorbike and upon arrival at a less crowded location, fired indiscriminately, killing them instantly.

With no arrests made so far, the Ghana Police Service announced a GHC 20,000 bounty for anyone who could offer information which will lead to the arrest of the perpetrators.
