Nkoranza Clash: 1 Dead, 9 Injured As Nana Yaa Brefo Goes Deep And Exposes Police Officers

Some youth in Nkoranza in the Bono Region clashed with the Ghana Police Service over the killing of a businessman in the community.

According to the youth, the police in Nkoranza shot and killed one Albert Donkor over allegations that he was an armed robber.

The angry youth blocked roads, burnt car tyres and later attacked the municipal police headquarters and ravaged police vehicles and property amid warning shots from the law officers.

The locals believe Mr Donkor was targeted and killed by the police because he witnessed a robbery incident involving a police officer on the Nkoranza-Kintampo road.

However, in a statement on the death of Albert Donkor, the police said he was in a robbery syndicate and was responsible for several robberies in the community.

“In the Bono East Region, police gathered intelligence that a suspect, Albert Donkor, and a gang of five other suspected armed robbers, whose names are being withheld for investigation purposes, were involved in several armed robbery attacks in the region, including armed robbery attacks at Nkoranza on April 19 and 20, 2022”, it said in a statement.

“Based on this intelligence, an operation was conducted during which suspect Albert Donkor was shot. He was rushed to the Holy Family Hospital for medical attention, but he was pronounced dead on arrival,” the statement noted.

“These special anti-robbery task forces have conducted a series of intelligence-led operations which have contributed immensely to the reduction of armed robbery incidents in the affected areas. The investigation will establish whether the operation was carried out in line with the standard operating procedures of the Service.”
