Gamali Appau' wife, Joyce Amankwa, took a stray bullet during the attack on the bullion van that also claimed the life of Constable General Emmanuel Osei who was escorting the bullion van transporting money.

Despite his loss, he indicated that his wife would ask him to forgive the killers if she were alive.
