According to a statement signed and copied to the Ghana News Agency by the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Mr David Eklu, the victim was murdered at a snap check duty point on the Kumbungu road, hence, the need for the deployment of officers from the Criminal Investigation, Intelligence and National Operations Departments to investigate the incidence.

All Regional Commanders, the statement explained, had been directed to put in extra measures to ensure the safety of the officers they deploy for duties and that of the public.

The statement also said on the instructions of the Acting lnspector-General of Police Mr James Oppong-Boanuh, the Northern Regional Commander had appointed a family liaison officer to liaise with the family of the deceased officer and offer counselling services to the family as well as the surviving officers of the crime.
