Amanda Amoah, whose husband Callistus Amoah was shot dead by robbers at Ablekuma Fan Milk on Thursday, June 22, has spoken out about her last moments with him. She said she had received money from him shortly before he was killed.
She told reporters on Friday, June 23 that she had called him earlier to ask for GH¢150 to pay for a biometric program she had attended. He had sent her the money within 10 minutes and told her that the network was bad.
She said she tried to call him again at 1:40 pm to check on him, but he did not answer. She thought he was busy counting money in the bullion van he was escorting.
She said her father later called her and told her that he had seen a message on his phone that a police officer had been shot at Ablekuma, which was his usual route. She said they turned on the TV and saw the news everywhere.
The police have warned the robbers who killed the officer that they will be arrested and brought to justice.
The officer was in front of a bullion van that was on security duty when he was attacked by four robbers on two motorbikes. They shot him several times at close range.
The robbers had followed the bullion van, which had gone to refill at the fuel station, where the shooting happened.
“The police are on a manhunt to arrest a gang of four robbers who attacked a bullion van at Ablekuma Fanmilk, a suburb of Accra and shot the police escort who has unfortunately passed on,” a statement from the police said.
“Our prayers and thoughts are with the family of our deceased colleague in particular and all personnel of the Police Service in general.
“We wish to assure the public that we will surely get the robbers arrested to face justice.”
