Driver Saved Cop’s Life

A driver, in a heroic feat, has saved a police officer attached to the Marine, Railways and Ports Department of the Tema Regional Police Command from robbery when he knocked down the miscreants on a motorcycle around the main harbour roundabout in Tema.

The two culprits, Michael Diala, 43 and Godfred Nwaiwu, 22 both Nigerians who reside at Chisco Station at Circle in Accra were said to have attacked the police officer after he had withdrawn an amount of GH₵7,700 from a financial institution at Community One in Tema.

Narrating the incident to DAILY GUIDE, Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Tema Regional Police Command, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Juliana Obeng explained that the suspects trailed the police officer from the banking hall to the main harbor roundabout where he met his friend and stopped to have a chat with him

She said in the course of the conversation, the suspects then on motorbike pulled up and “the pillion rider (Godfred) quickly snatched the envelope containing the money from the complainant and they sped off meandering their way through the vehicles.”

ASP Obeng indicated that in desperation, the policeman raised an alarm and a man who was then passing by in his private car heard the distressed call and chased the robbers and knocked them down with the car.

The robbers sensing danger scattered the money on the ground and took to their heels but were quickly rounded up by an angry mob who wanted to lynch them but only ended up burning their motorbike as the suspects were saved by the police.

A total cash of GH₵6, 340 was recovered from the suspects after the incident. A spot check conducted on them revealed a knife; found on Godfred.

According to her the victim arrested them and sent them to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Regional Police Command for further investigations.

She said investigations have been completed and the suspects would be arraigned soon.
