The police officer who suffered a gunshot wound during a shootout between the police and the Caprice armed robbers has been immediately promoted from Corporal to Sergeant.
The policeman participated in a special operation to apprehend the armed robbers who assaulted, shot, and robbed a woman at Caprice in Accra together with other members of his squad.
The gunfire caused the injured officer’s right thigh bone to shatter many times, necessitating significant surgery.
“The Police Administration has, therefore, made the necessary provision under the Police Emergency Medical Intervention Fund (PEMIF), which was launched by H.E the President in January this year to ensure he receives the best medical care available in Ghana or in other parts of the world as the case may be” a statement by the Police stated.
