Pwalugu (U/E), – The remains of the two Police officers who were shot by suspected armed robbers at Zuarungu in the Bolgatanga East District of the Upper East Region have been flown to Accra for the necessary rites and burial.
A brief parade in honour of the deceased was held at the Police Training School at Pwalugu in the Talensi District in which Dr George Akuffo Dampare and other senior officers of the Service were in attendance.
The two officers, Constable Emmanuel Akowuah and Constable Adam Sulley were killed at the Zuarungu market square by alleged armed robbers while on night patrol.
The suspects who had attacked a shop at the market and made away with a sum of GH¢2,000.00, fired gun shots at the two Policemen while the Police officers were on their motorbike and killed them instantly.
The bullets also pierced through the fuel tank of the motorbike which caused it to catch fire and partly burnt Constable Sulley.
The Police Administration has promised to award GH¢50,000.00 to any person who would provide the Service with relevant information that could lead to the arrest of the suspects.
