He explained that the timely intervention of some police officers on patrol duty in the area came to the rescue of Mr Issahaku.

The police also revealed that investigations have commenced into the circumstances surrounding the incident.

“We are seriously investigating. That’s why we always say that the motorbike patrol is helping us. If the police had been there before the incident, they could have easily chased them while we were using the motorbikes. Unfortunately we could not get them,” the Inspector added.
