The IGP giving police personnel in Upper East Region moral

The two Const. Emmanuel Akowuah and Const. Adam Sulley visited their untimely death at the Zuarungu Market in Bolgatanga East of the Upper East Region on Wednesday, December 15, 2021.

However, according to the Regional Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Police Service ASP. David Fianko Okyere who addressed the media Sais: “The information we have is that, when the patrol teams were on their duties around 7:00 Pm evening Wednesday, December 15, 2021, we got information at our control room here that armed robbers had attacked a particular shop in Zuarungu area and for that matter, they needed police assistance”.

“Meanwhile, these two policemen on motorbike patrolling had already started their duty. So, it’s just a coincidence that arrived on the scene where the crime was committed and unfortunately, the criminals fired on them and that is what we have as of now.

Interestingly, barely 10 hours after the incident in the region, the IGP George Akufo Dampare visited the region to ascertain the level of damage caused and as well to encourage his personnel not to be weak in spirit because of the tragic incident of their colleagues.

“Barely 10hours after the incident, the Inspector General of Police George Akufo Dampare himself has paid a visit to the region to get firsthand information about the incident and also to raise the moral of our personnel.

“He is currently in the regional headquarters here addressing the personnel. Earlier, he visited the crime scene in Zuarungu market square, he also visited the chief and people of Zuarungu at his police, he met the community near the crime scene and assured them that he will do everything possible as a police administration to ensure we get the perpetrators of this heinous crime either dead or alive and he wished that we get them dead and what it means is that, he has charged police personnel in the Upper East Region to do everything possible to ensure we arrest the perpetrators of this heinous crime. And this should prevent us from doing our work, this should rather ginger us to go ahead to combat crime in the region”.

Meanwhile, since March 2020, the region has not recorded such a heinous crime.
