The Minority caucus in Ghana’s legislature has filed a private member motion to trigger a bipartisan investigation to unravel the circumstance that led to the killing of two policemen who were assisting with information relating to the bullion van robberies.
The rationale behind the motion was explained by Ranking Member on the Defense and Interior Committee in Parliament James Agalga.
“The killing of the two police officers has now resulted in a situation where the police administration would be denied of very crucial evidence in its quest to unravel the bullion robberies in our country.”
“What makes the matter even more worrying is the fact that the persons implicated, some of whom are now dead, are, themselves, police officers. That is what makes a probe and an inquiry very compelling.”
Police revealed that the two apprehended officers met their unfortunate demise while assisting with an operation to fish out their collaborators from their hideout.
The two officers who died were identified as Constable Reindolph Ansah and Lance Corporal Stephen Kwaku Nyame.
The bullion van attacks currently being probed are ones that occurred at Kingsway, Baatsona, Jamestown, and North Kaneshie Industrial Area last year.
Police on March 8 announced the arrest of the four policemen, alongside one other suspect while stating that five other civilian suspects are on the run.
