Psychologists have been sent to work on all those who witnessed the killing of the two Police officers in Kasoa last week.

The Director-General of the Public Affairs Directorate, ACP David Eklu, said this is to reduce the emotional trauma they are going through.

Speaking on GBC’s Current Affairs Programme, ‘Focus’, ACP Eklu said following the unfortunate killing of the two officers, security in Kasoa and its environs have been stepped up to protect lives and property.

ACP David Eklu however warned that anyone who kills or attacks any Police Officer, the entire Police administration will descend on such individual or group.

He said any attack on any officer is an attack on the state and the country’s democracy and the Police administration will not allow that to happen.

Among the many witnesses is a 13-year-old girl whose worried mother said is still traumatised by the incident.

She said her daughter is now unable to sleep at night as her son cries anytime he sees strangers.

The teenager narrated to Joy News how Eric Kojo Duah, the prime suspect shot and killed two police officer at Gomoa Buduburam last Wednesday.

Narrating her traumatic experience amidst tears, said they were in their shop when a police vehicle with two officers [Sgt Micheal Dzamesi and Lance Corporal Mohammed Awal] and a private car pulled up that afternoon.

One of the two policemen got out of the car and slapped Mr Kojo Duah who was driving the unregistered Toyota Camry after attempts to stop him failed. 

According to her, he told the officer he was taking money from his car but pulled a gun and fired at Sgt Dzamesi first and then Lance Corporal Mohammed Awal.
