Bullion van driver shot dead by policeman

Ghana Police News-A policeman has “mistakenly” shot a bullion van driver dead at Odumase Krobo, Saturday.

The unfortunate incident occurred when the officer stepped out of the bullion car to maintain order on the road.

Kenny Stephen, an eyewitness who spoke to Ghanaweb.com said, the youth were on their way to the cemetery to bury a deceased 22-year-old lady. Upon getting to the main road, they dropped the coffin amidst chanting.

With their presence being an impediment, the policeman fired warning shots, an act which infuriated the youth. They subsequently went after the officer who in an attempt to defend himself shot one in the leg.

According to Stephen, the policeman reported himself to the nearest police station. The body has since been sent to the morgue.
