    Owusu was shot multiple times and was rushed to a nearby health facility by some members of the public but died shortly after. The Accra Police Command in a statement has said, Djibril is however in a stable condition.

    The suspects later snatched an unregistered Hyundai vehicle from its owner at gunpoint and sped off, a police statement said.

    Commissioning an office for the Divisional Command at Kaneshie in Accra Friday, Mr Asante Apeatu said: “It is sad to note that very few criminally minded groups and individuals continue to perpetrate violence on our hard working officers as well as some members of the public.

    “The killing of a constable, who was on lawful community policing duties to protect the public, is a matter concern to the Police Administration as well as the entire Police Service and the public.

    “On this note, the Police Administration is offering a reward of 10,000 cedis to anyone who provides information leading to the arrest of those behind this criminal act,” the IGP announced.

    He, however, said details of the reward will soon be provided while he appealed to the public to “assist the police to bring these criminals to book”.

    Meanwhile, Mr. Asante Apeatu has vowed the police administration will get to the bottom of the matter despite admitting that the Service currently has logistical constraints.

    He also announced plans to embark on a tour to assure members of the force to remain resolute as they commit to serving the nation.
