Armed robbers didn’t kill our men, we did - Police reveal

The Public Affairs Director of the Ghana Police Service, DSP Cephas Arthur, has revealed that the two police officers who were shot and killed on Monday, were killed by the police, contrary to earlier reports that suspected armed robbers shot and killed them in a gun battle.
On Tuesday, it was reported that two Police officers of the Winneba District Police were shot and killed in a gun battle with suspected armed robbers on Monday night.

But speaking on Citi Eyewitness news, DSP Arthur said “the first incident was misunderstood because there was no categorical statement as to who did the shooting”

Explaining how the incident, DSP Arthur stated that “a police officer who had sustained injuries from gun shots, and was being rushed to the hospital by another police officer, were mistaken to be criminals and were inadvertently shot by the police, resulting in the death of the police officers.”

According to him, “since the police officers were not wearing their uniforms, they were not identified by the patrol team, and that explains why they were shot.”

He noted that the police only realised they had shot their own after the police officers were taken to the hospital to receive medical attention.
