Three police officers in the Ashanti region have been interdicted for their role in the alleged butchering of a driver at Adonfe on Tuesday following Starr News reports.
Investigations into the incident and the suspects have also been handed over to the Police Intelligence and Professional Standard Bureau(Pips).
“The Command as part of investigation has recommended the interdiction of three (3) Officers, namely General Sergeant Suleman Seidu, General Corporal Seth Agbango and General Lance Corporal Salifu Yakubu.
“In all Nine (9) Officers embarked on the operation but Three (3) of the officers have been implicated having taken active part in the incident, hence their interdiction.
“The Command has also tasked the Regional Police Professional Standards Bureau (PPSB) to also institute internal Administrative investigation into the conduct of the Officers and report,” a police statement said.
The action comes hours after security analyst Adam Bona called on the IGP to interdict the officers who embarked on the operation that led to the death of the driver.
The residents of Adonfe told Starr News that about seven police officers with three in uniform stormed the area for an operation and had an altercation with the deceased, restrained him to the ground, kicked and punched him in the face before some of the officers started butchering him with a machete.
Recounting the incident to Starr News, Assembly Man for the area Samuel Kofi Boadu said the policemen who were on patrol searched for one Mr Kamkam and another Yaa Yaa who live in the area.
He said since they did not find these individuals, they ransacked their homes and did not find anything as well.
