One police officer has been shot dead at Mankessim in the Central Region where armed robbers attacked a Zen fuel filling station.

The Wednesday dawn robbery operation, which was foiled by the police in the area, also saw three officers injured.

Lance Corporal Kingsley Boahen was walking by the road near the filling station in mufti when he was shot.

The armed robbers first retreated by scaling walls within the filling station after a shoot-out with a police team which first arrived at the scene.

According to Central Regional Police PRO, DSP Irene Oppong, after the team left the scene, they  received information later at about 4:00 a.m. that there has been another gunshot from a bush near the filling station.

Officers were immediately dispatched to the area but only to find an officer in mufti shot dead.

“At about 4:00 a.m., we got information that there has been gunshot at a bush near the filling station and police personnel were dispatched there. When they got to the area, they saw that it was one officer, Kinsley Boahen who has been shot dead by the armed robbers,” she told journalists.

His body has since been taken to the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital for autopsy.

Investigations into the case has also commence, she said.
