The mother of the slain Ghanaian police officer who was killed while protecting money in a bullion van, Constable General Emmanuel Osei, has painfully grieved his death.
Emmanuel Osei, 25, was shot and killed by unknown armed robbers at Adedenkpo, a suburb of James Town in Accra on Monday, June 14, while transporting money in a bullion van.
An eyewitness, Afua Badu, was also shot and killed in the robbery incident.
Constable General Osei's mother has wept bitterly as she mourned the heinous killing of her son when reporters went to the family house.
''I have suffered and just when my son gained employment to take of me [he has been killed]. Look at my end,'' she told reporters amid tears.
The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), James Oppong-Boanuh, was at the family house of Constable General Osei along with some personnel of the police command to commiserate with the bereaved family over their loss.
The police chief assured the family that the police will ensure that the perpetrators of the grisly crime are brought to book.
Scores of mourners, sympathisers, and family members were clad in black and red at the family house of the deceased to mourn his untimely death at the time of IGP's visit.
Meanwhile, the IGP has engaged several stakeholders in the banking sector to address the recent murder of the police officer who was tasked to escort a vehicle carrying cash.
At the meeting held with the Governor of the Bank of Ghana (BoG), Dr Ernest Addison, executives of the Ghana Association of Bankers, and managing directors of banks in Ghana, the decision to use standardised equipment for Cash in Transit (CIT) services was reiterated.
This decision will be effective on June 30, 2021.
