One grabbed over shooting of police officer at Mankessim

The Central Regional Police CID has arrested one Isaac Eshun, the owner of Zen Filling Station near which a police officer was shot dead on Wednesday.

Before the incident, police officers had foiled a robbery attack at the fuel station.

Investigations were immediately launched into the murder with the Central Regional Command assisted by the Crime Scene Management Team from the Criminal Investigations Directorate at headquarters.

The team realized that the spent cartrigdes retrieved from the murder scene are suspected to have been fired from a shot gun and pistol belonging to the owner of the fuel station.

Lance Corporal Kingsley Boahene was in mufti, however, when he was killed at the scene 400 meters away from the fuel station, which is situated on the Mankessim-Kumasi road.

The police are on the heels of a second suspect “to assist with investigations”.

Isaac Eshun is expected to be put before court.
