The police in the Ashanti Region have gunned down seven out of the eight suspected robbers, who reportedly attacked and killed a police office on duty.
The deceased officer, Lance Corporal Daniel Teiku, was on duty with his colleague, Lance Corporal Eric Nsiah, when eight masked men attacked the vehicle they were travelling in at Ayirebikrom near Manso Nkwanta on July 13.
According to a news report by Citinewsroom.com, the bodies of the seven persons have been deposited at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital morgue.
The deceased officer was on duty with his colleague when the incident happened.
The two were on board a Sprinter Benz Bus with registration number AC-644-15 when eight masked men armed with AK 47 assault rifles and a pump action gun attacked the passengers at the outskirts of Ayirebikrom on Wednesday, July 11, 2018.
The two police officers were overpowered by the masked men and were shot alongside with other passengers on board.
Armed robbery in Ghana has been a major problem over the years. No government since independence has succeeded in eradicating it, apparently because it has taken different forms and taken society and the security apparatus by surprise wherever and whenever it occurs.
It is nothing new. What has happened so far under Akufo-Addo's watch may come across as disturbing, but it is the same old story being told in a new political era.
