Some unknown agitating youth of Akatsi South in the Volta Region have injured a Police officer (name withheld) in an attempt to launch a mob attack on some two suspects who allegedly murdered a 28-year-old motor rider.

The incident happened on Wednesday, May 24, after the Police attempted to arrest the suspects and retrieve the body of the deceased [Louis Agbogli] at Nyatsive, a village near the Republic of Togo, where he was allegedly murdered.

Chief Superintendent Isaac Baah, the Akatsi South Municipal Police Commander, narrating the incident to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) said the Police officer got injured on his forehead as he tried to stop the mob from attacking the suspects.

He said the incident happened when his men returned from the scene of the alleged murder act together with Etse Datsomor, a 20-year-old suspect in connection with the crime.

The GNA observed that the development led to the massing up of some rampaging youth and residents at the Akatsi Police station demanding the release of the suspects for them to execute ‘instant justice’.


However, it took the timely intervention of the MCE for the area and the Rapid Deployment of the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Unit of the Police Service to restore calm.
