The acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP), James Oppong-Boanuh, has placed a GH¢10,000 bounty on the head of Eric Kojo Duah, who is alleged to be the main suspect involved in the killing of two policemen at Budumburam in the Central Region.
Three suspects, Ibrahim Zakaria, Isaac Amissah and Dominic Commey were arrested on Wednesday, August 28, for allegedly shooting and killing two policemen at Gomoa Budumburam, near Kasoa in the Central Region. However, the prime suspect, Duah is on the run.
The suspects allegedly shot Sergeant Michael Gyamasi and Lance Corporal Awal Mohammed, both attached to the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service at Kasoa, who were on task force duties on the Kasoa-Winneba highway.
The suspects, who were using an unregistered Toyota Camry vehicle and said to be driving recklessly, shot the unarmed policemen after refusing to stop when the security officers signalled them to do so.
Duah, whose pistol was found in the abandoned Toyota Camry, has been declared wanted.
