Kwadwo Safo Kantanka Junior, the CEO of Kantanka Group as well as Kantanka Automobiles has asserted that his franchise can build complete bullion vans within 5-7 weeks.
This comes weeks after a robbery attack took place on a bullion van at Korle Bu, in which the police officer in charge was shot and killed on the spot, sparking calls for bulletproof vans to be used instead.
Speaking in an interview with TV3 Ghana, Kwadwo Safo indicated that a lot goes into the production of bullion vans and five to seven weeks is enough time for him to get the job done.
