2 Min Read

The Inspector General of Police, dr George Akuffo Dampare has promoted the police officer who sustained gunshot wounds during a shootout with armed robbers on Sunday December 11.

The Police officer has been promoted from the rank of Corporal to Sergeant with immediate effect.

He was among a group on a special operation to arrest suspected armed robbers who carried out a daylight robbery at Caprice on Friday December 9 and shot a Chinese woman in the process.

The injured corporal suffered multi-fragmented fractures to the bone of his right thigh due to the gunshot and is billed for a major surgery.

The Police Administration has, therefore, made the necessary provision under the Police Emergency Medical Intervention Fund, which was launched by the President in January this year to ensure he receives the best medical care available in Ghana or other parts of the world as the case may be.

A staement signed by the director of the police public affairs directorate, chief superintendent Grace Ansah-Akrofi, once again commended the officer and all the other members of the team for the role they played leading to the arrest of one of the robbers and the death of two others.
