The Director-General in charge of Legal and Prosecution for the Ghana Police Service, COP Nathan Kofi Boakye, says they will do everything possible to arrest perpetrators behind the Jamestown bullion van attack that took the life of a young police officer and a trader at James town in Accra.
At a passing-out ceremony for 320 police recruits at Kumasi on Friday, 18 June 2021, COP Boakye said the suspects involved in the robbery, which led to the killing of a police officer and hawker, will not go unpunished.
“I must emphasize the fact that the Ghana Police Service is able and capable and has the ability to arrest these criminals”, he asserted.
“I’m at this point, on behalf of the Inspector-General of Police and the police administration, assuring everybody and the entire nation that these criminals, especially those who committed last week’s crime, and all others who have committed other crimes in recent times, are going to be arrested soon – and I mean soon”, he promised.
“Their arrest is non-negotiable to the Service”, COP Boakye noted, warning: “They can run and run but we will get them.”
Mr. James Oppong-Boanuh, the Inspector General of Police, has already instructed the Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), to take over investigations into the matter.
