The six discharged persons are Isaac Amissah, Ibrahim Zakaria, Isaac Mensa, Oblitey Commey, Victor Yire and Fatawu Ahmed.

Duah was heading towards the Volta region before being arrested at the Atimpoku bridge in a black Golf car with registration number GW 5972 – 18.

Unarmed Sgt. Michael Gyamasie and L/CPL Awal Mohammed were shot to death by the suspects on Wednesday at Gomoa Buduburam, near Kasoa in the Central region. One of the cops died on the spot while the other died at the Police Hospital. They were on task force duties at Kasoa-Winneba highway when the incident occurred.

Police killings

This brings to five—the number of police officers gruesomely murdered in the last 30 days.

On July 30, 2019, Corporal Agatha Nana Nabin with the Northern Regional Police Command was shot dead at a police checkpoint on the Tamale-Kumbungu road in the Sagnarigu District.

The report is that armed and masked men in a grey saloon car discharged their weapons after being stopped at the check-point.

The killers took away two rifles belonging to the deceased and her colleague who escaped.

Some “persons of interest” are standing trial in connection with the incident.

Corporal Bernard Antwi, 37, was attached to Manso Nkwanta Divisional Command in the Ashanti region.

His was found dead after working hours at Manso Abodom in the Amansie West District of the region on August 19, 2019.

Police are hunting for a key suspect as they interrogate three others as part of its investigations.

In less than 24 hours, another officer was also found dead while on duty at Akim-Swedru in the Eastern Region.

Lance Corporal Alhassan Asare has since been buried as police continue investigations.
