Three Police officers have been arrested by the Ashanti regional Police command over the killing of a 22-year-old man at Krofrom, a suburb of Kumasi.
The officers who were chasing an alleged criminal arrested and brutalized the deceased, who residents have described as innocent, in a mistaken identity incident Friday. Subsequently, the regional Police commander DCOP Kofi Boakye visited the area and assured irate residents that perpetrators would be brought to book.
The three officers were arrested under the instruction of the regional police commander, the deputy regional Police commander DCOP Ampofo Doku has stated.
