We will get them – IGP pledges to arrest killers of police officer

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), James Oppong-Boanuh has pledged that no stone will be left unturned in his quest to ensure the killers of Constable General, Emmanuel Osei, are arrested.

According to him, the case is being investigated by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), thus the culprits of the heinous act will be brought to book.

“We are investigating; which we have already set in motion. If you recall, yesterday we released a statement and before that I had instructed the CID to take over the case, and that is the level of seriousness we have attached to the case. So they have started investigations. And as I have indicated, we will definitely get them [the perpetrators].

“Let me assure you that we are not just sitting down,” he stated.

Mr Oppong-Boanuh gave the assurance on Tuesday, June 15, when he paid a visit to commiserate with the bereaved family.

Upon arrival at the family house of the late Emmanuel Osei, he was met by a crowd of mourners clad in black and red who were wailing over their loss.

Known to many as Kobby, Emmanuel Osei and a hawker, Afua Badu, met their untimely death at Adedenkpo, a suburb of James Town in Accra. Kobby was providing escort for a bullion van transporting money on Monday, June 14, when was shot.

They were attacked by a group of armed robbers who trailed the bullion van in a taxi and on a motorbike and upon arrival at a less crowded location, fired indiscriminately, killing them instantly.

The driver of the vehicle, however, sustained several injuries and has been admitted at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital for treatment.
